MINOT -- Law officers have arrested an Idaho man suspected of robbing the US Bank in downtown Minot on Thursday after a clear photo of his face from a security camera in the bank was released.

Charles David Norton, 45, was tracked down in St. Maries, Idaho, about 6:30 p.m. Friday night. The Minot police, in cooperation with the FBI in Minot, obtained an arrest warrant for Norton earlier Friday. It was learned that Norton had fled North Dakota and was heading back to his home state of Idaho, Minot Police Capt. John Klug said.

The FBI then contacted the Benewah County Sheriff’s Office in St. Maries where deputies there got ahold of Norton and said that he agreed to turn himself in.

Klug said Norton was identified through tips provided by two independent sources after they saw photos released to the media.

Norton is accused of entering the bank, slipping the teller a note and then taking off with an undisclosed amount of cash about 11:30 a.m Thursday.
