May 5, 2014

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Federal authorities say a man suspected of robbing a bank in Albuquerque is in custody.

FBI spokesman Frank Fisher says 54-year-old Randy Lee Gallahan, of Albuquerque, was arrested Saturday afternoon in connection with the robbery of a Bank of America branch.

Gallahan will appear in U.S. District Court in Albuquerque on Monday.

Witnesses say a man entered the bank around 9:10 a.m. Saturday and demanded money from a teller.

The suspect then left with an undisclosed amount of money.

Fisher says the FBI and Albuquerque police are investigating whether another robbery on Saturday at a Wells Fargo bank is related.
