MOUNT VERNON, Wash. (AP) - Police in Mount Vernon, Washington, say two men are in custody after a bank was robbed late Wednesday afternoon. Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies quickly stopped a vehicle sought in the case and made the arrests.

The Skagit Valley Herald reports (https://is.gd/ZJYcT9 ) that city police Lt. Chris Cammock says a male robber entered a Peoples Bank branch at about 5:30 p.m. and apparently implied that he had a weapon. The man took an unspecified amount of money and left in a vehicle with a second man.

Sheriff’s deputies spotted the vehicle on southbound Interstate 5.
