Citizen Staff



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.

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.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
