A Tucson man was arrested yesterday on armed robbery charges in connection with a bank robbery in the University of Arizona area.

Danny Lee Cove, 37, of 5600 block of South Country Club Road was arrested on the UA campus moments after police say he robbed the Wells Fargo Bank at 1701 E. Speedway Blvd.

According to police, Cove walked into the bank in midafternoon and handed a teller a note saying he had a weapon and wanted money.

The teller obliged, and Cove left the bank. He got across the street but not much farther.

He was almost immediately spotted by a UA police officer who had heard the description of the bank robber over his radio and alerted Tucson police that he saw the suspect on campus.

Police arrested Cove not far from the bank.

He did not have a weapon when he was arrested, police said.

Police spokesman Sgt. Marco Borboa would not say how much money was taken.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.
