JACKSON, N.J. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a man suspected of being the would-be bank robber who walked away after a New Jersey bank teller asked for some identification.

Ryan Higgins of Jackson is held on $100,000 bail, charged with attempted robbery.

Jackson police Lt. Steven Laskiewicz tells the Asbury Park Press (https://on.app.com/1lEBil0) the 40-year-old was arrested Thursday after police received multiple tips from people who saw a photo from bank surveillance cameras.
