HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP) - Federal authorities say a bank robbery fugitive from Washington state is back in custody after officers using an automated license plate reader spotted a stolen car in a Fred Meyer parking lot.

The U.S. attorney’s office said 45-year-old Bradley Steven Robinett was convicted in 2004, released in 2009 in Arizona and sent on a bus to a halfway house in Seattle. But he didn’t report in.

Later that year, officers pursued him at high speed on Bainbridge Island in Washington state. He got away, but officers found a stolen police ballistic vest and handgun in a stolen vehicle he used.

On Monday, Hillsboro officers spotted license plates stolen in Portland on a car reported stolen in King County, and they arrested Robinett when he returned to the car.
