COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Columbus Division Police have arrested a man suspected of robbing a Fifth-Third Bank located inside a Kroger last week on the city's west side.
Columbus police say the suspect walked into the Kroger on Soldano Boulevard on Jan. 20 and handed the teller a note demanding money.
The teller gave the suspect an unknown amount of cash. The suspect left the store and drove off in a White Ford Flex.
The suspect was later identified as 34-year-old Nicholas Wittekind. Police say Wittekind was arrested after going on a mini crime spree.
Police said it was determined Wittekind robbed a Big Lots and Kroger and stole the vehicle on Jan. 18.
After robbing the bank, police said he also robbed a Target, Old Navy and Michael's.
Officers were able to apprehend Wittekind as he was fleeing the last robbery.
