On Friday March 6, 2015, Portland Police officers responded to the U.S. Bank branch located at 636 SE Grand Avenue on the report of a bank robbery.
Officers arrived in the area and spoke to employees who told police that the suspect used a demand note and obtained cash before fleeing the area.
Robbery detectives and Special Agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) conducted investigative follow-up, identifying 28-year-old Brian Joseph Sutton as the suspect.
Investigators obtained an arrest warrant on Wednesday March 11 and within an hour, a Behavioral Health Unit (BHU) officer responded to a welfare check in the 8100 block of Southeast Division Street.
The officer contacted a man, later identified as Sutton, and determined he had an outstanding warrant for bank robbery.
Sutton was arrested and booked into the Multnomah County Jail on a Federal Hold.
