Suspect Arrested After Bank Robbery, High Speed Chase

Laramie, Wy – A bank robbery in Cheyenne this morning led to a high speed chase and shots fired. The suspect robbed the First Interstate bank, fled and started a high speed chase from Cheyenne to Laramie on I-80. During the chase law enforcement agents did shoot at the suspect. But, the man evaded police and reached Laramie, stopping finally at a residence where law enforcement fired more shots before arresting the man.
The F-B-I is heading up the investigation, but agent Michele Velasquez says she has not received many details about the case yet.
The Cheyenne Police say the man used a package he claimed was a bomb to rob the bank. No word yet if it actually was a bomb.
