MEDFORD, Ore. -- Roughly an hour after Medford Police requested help from the public in finding a bank robbery suspect on Tuesday morning, officers took the man into custody.

The agency said that the Key Bank at Barnett Road and Black Oak Drive was robbed at 10:21 a.m. Tuesday. In a facebook post, police describe the suspect as a white man with slight facial hair. He was wearing an orange beanie and flannel over a sweatshirt. He was last seen heading towards Barnett Road.

Around 11:23 a.m., someone called Medford Police to report that they had seen the suspect on Black Oak Drive near Picadilly Circle. Officers responded to the area and arrested 45-year-old Lawrence Paul Greene at his home in the 400-block of Picadilly.

Lt. Mike Budreau said that all of the money stolen from Key Bank was recovered.

Greene does not have a significant criminal record in Oregon, beyond a DUII charge in 2015. Greene initially pleaded "no contest" to the charge, entered and successfully completed a treatment program, and ultimately had the charge dismissed in 2016.
