WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - West Des Moines police arrested a man suspected in a bank robbery after a witness photographed the man's vehicle and then followed it several miles until police could make a stop.
 
Police say in a news release that they were called to a robbery at First Bank in West Des Moines just before 2 p.m. A witness told police the man had robbed the same bank Jan. 6.
 
The suspect had fled the bank, but a witness photographed a minivan he climbed into and then followed the vehicle for several miles and directed police. Officers finally stopped the minivan at a motel parking lot and arrested a man.
 
Police charged 34-year-old Shawn Michael Antisdel, of West Des Moines, with second-degree robbery.
 
Online court records on the case weren't available.
