WEST DES MOINES (AP) — West Des Moines police arrested a man suspected in a bank robbery after a witness photographed the man’s vehicle and then followed it several miles until police could make a stop.

Police say in a news release that they were called to a robbery at First Bank in West Des Moines just before 2 p.m. A witness told police the man had robbed the same bank Jan. 6.

The suspect had fled the bank, but a witness photographed a minivan he climbed into and then followed the vehicle for several miles and directed police, who charged 34-year-old Shawn Michael Antisdel, of West Des Moines, with second-degree robbery.
