PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Portland Police say they’ve arrested a serial bank robber dubbed “The Lazy Leprechaun.”

KATU-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2y6mtnO ) that officials are reporting that 35-year-old Eric B. Smotherman robbed the KeyBank on northeast Broadway Friday afternoon.

He was arrested shortly after during a traffic stop, when police spotted a realistic-looking replica firearm in his car.

Smoherman was placed on a U.S. Marshal’s hold at Multnomah County Jail for a charge of bank robbery and second-degree theft.

Police say more charges are likely for similar alleged crimes.

It was not immediately known if Smotherman has a lawyer.
