WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) - Police have made an arrest in a bank robbery in the Maine town of Waterville.

Police say 28-year-old David Alvarez of Thomaston was arrested Friday after authorities say he robbed the Bangor Savings Bank on Main Street.

Bank employees and customers told police that a man in his 20s walked into the bank, handed a teller a note containing a threat and demanded money. He then fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police broadcast an image of the robber taken from bank surveillance cameras to local police units, who were able to identify him.

Police say they found a large amount of cash on Alvarez when they arrested him after he had gotten into a vehicle.

It was not immediately known if he was being represented by a lawyer.
