Today at approximately 1:35 p.m., Spokane County Sheriff’s Deputies began responding to a bank robbery at the Bank of Fairfield in Rockford. Several Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Detectives who have been investigating recent robberies also
heard the call and began to assist.
With the possibility of the suspect fleeing to the east into North Idaho, this information was quickly forwarded to our neighboring law enforcement agencies in Kootenai County.
An adult male suspect was taken into custody in North Idaho. This investigation is ongoing and Spokane County Major Crimes detectives are working with agents from the FBI to determine if this suspect is also responsible for other robberies in the local area.
Since this is an active ongoing investigation, there is no further information available at this time.
