Bank robbery suspect arrested after tip

Citizen Staff Writer



An anonymous tipster to 88-CRIME has led to the arrest of a man on a bank robbery charge, Tucson police said.

The robbery was at the Chase Bank branch, 6161 E. 22nd St. on Wednesday, said Officer Linda Galindo, a police spokeswoman.

Galindo said a man walked into the bank, handed a teller a note demanding money and left with an undisclosed amount.

No injuries were reported.

On Friday, Galindo said, detectives got an 88-CRIME tip on the name of a suspect in the robbery.

Police arrested Kristopher T. Huffman, 29 that day at a home in the 6500 block of East Calle Alkaid, five blocks from where Huffman told jail corrections officers he lived in the 6000 block of East Calle Alkaid.

During an initial court appearance later Friday, Huffman was ordered released without bail to the supervision of the Superior Court’s Pretrial Services program, a jail records clerk said.

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
