JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - An Alabama man suspected of robbing a bank in Alaska’s capital has been arrested.

The Juneau Empire (https://bit.ly/1bhoC1r) reports 52-year-old Larry Randolph Powell of Bay Minette (min-EHT’) is charged with robbing the Mendenhall Valley branch of Northrim Bank.

Police say a man walked into the bank at 11:15 a.m. Friday and claimed he had an explosive device. He did not display a weapon.

A security camera showed a heavyset man with a graying goatee leaving with a colored pouch.

Alaska Airlines personnel Saturday reported a suspicious man attempting to fly out. Powell was arrested shortly after noon at Juneau International Airport.

Police say Powell matched the description of the man recorded by the surveillance camera.

Powell is charged with felony robbery, theft and terroristic threats. He’s being held without bail.
