A suspect has been booked into the Pima County Jail on suspicion of nine counts of robbery.
Kenneth Peter Polley, 35, of the 23000 block of East Mohican Place is being held on $500,745 bail on suspicion of nine bank robberies and one attempted robbery and on a warrant for issuing a bad check, according to the jail. He is listed as unemployed.
Tucson police arrested him Saturday as he walked back to his vehicle after allegedly trying to rob the Wells Fargo branch at 5535 E. 22nd St., said Officer Michelle Pickrom, a Tucson police spokeswoman.
A note similar to those used in previous robberies was found on him, she said. Detectives obtained a search warrant for his house, which led to more robbery charges, Pickrom said.
He may face additional charges, said Sgt. Marco Borboa, a police spokesman.
