BEND, OR -- It didn't take Bend police long to make an arrest in a Selco Credit Union robbery in northeast Bend Wednesday.
The department got the call just after 10 a.m. Lt. Clint Burleigh says good descriptions by Selco employees helped officers track down the suspect quickly, nearby.
Lt. Burleigh says they arrested 28-year-old Brett Gillispie-Comstock in the Barnes and Noble Parking lot. "He had purchased a Christmas tree and was carrying it on his shoudler close to his head in an attempt to conceal his identity."
A Redmond police K9 searched the nearby area and was able to locate a large amount of the cash taken.
Gillispie-Comstock faces several counts of robbery and theft.
