The same Golden Valley bank that was robbed three weeks ago was robbed again Friday afternoon, but this time a suspect was caught.
Keith Brandon Coggins, 18, of Kingman, was arrested at gunpoint about 4 p.m.
by an alert Arizona Department of Public Safety officer across the street from Kingman's main post office on Johnson Avenue, Mohave County Sheriff's Office spokesman Steve Johnson said.
Coggins allegedly robbed the bank, located in the 4200 block of Highway 68 in Golden Valley, around 2:50 p.m.
He is also a suspect in the armed robbery of the same bank Jan.
29, Johnson said.
It is believed that Coggins allegedly robbed the Golden Valley bank Friday, fleeing the bank with what witnesses described as a semi-automatic handgun, but which later turned out to be a BB gun, DPS Sgt.
Bob Cencelewski said.
DPS's helicopter Ranger-41 tracked the suspect who was driving a gray Toyota toward Kingman when he was stopped as he was turning onto Stockton Hill Road from Andy Devine Avenue, he said.
A DPS officer spotted the suspect matching that description and pulled Coggins over for a traffic stop.
With weapon drawn, the DPS officer arrested Coggins, who was allegedly found with the weapon and an undisclosed amount of cash in his car, Cencelewski said.
The same bank was robbed at gunpoint in January by what witnesses described as a white male.
In that robbery, the suspect was seen leaving in a dark vehicle with white license plate with dark letters.
