MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) - A man arrested in the robbery of a Wells Fargo Bank in Moscow this month broke down in court Friday and told the judge he has no memory of committing the robbery.

The Moscow-Pullman Daily News reports (https://is.gd/AEAdHV ) that 31-year-old Ebrahem E. Arar, of Moscow, appeared in Latah County Magistrate Court on Friday. He was arrested in the Sept. 18 robbery after police released digital still photos of a man at a Wal-Mart in Pullman, Washington, purchasing a wig, false beard, liquid latex and dark face cream believed to have been used in the robbery.

Arar said in court he suffers blackouts due to anxiety medication and has no memory of committing the robbery. He wept as he said his wife was leaving him.

According to a probable cause affidavit, Arar was identified as having lost $1,900 at Mr. Z’s Casino in Pullman less than 36 hours after the robbery. The amount reported stolen from the bank was $2,335.

Arrar faces five years to life in prison.
