MEDFORD, Ore. — Medford Police arrested a bank robbery suspect in a matter of minutes after the initial 911 call.
Police say 39-year-old Joe Campos walked into the Key Bank on East Main Street and waited in line. When he got up to the teller, he demanded cash.
Officers say Campos did not flash a weapon, but became agitated and upset.
Through witness descriptions and surveillance photos, several officers spotted Campos on his bicycle near 10th and Cottage Street. Police say his clothing was unique. The colors and the design on his shirt helped officers identify Campos quickly.
“He initially did not indicate that he was involved, in any way. However, pictures don’t lie,” said Medford Police Lt. Mike Budreau.
Officers recovered most of the stolen money. They say he purchased a water, Mike’s Hard Lemonade and cigarettes before they arrested him.
