(Centennial, Colo.) A suspect was arrested Wednesday by Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office investigators and the FBI Denver for a bank robbery on Tuesday morning.

Leonard Farrar, 38, was arrested on one felony charge of aggravated robbery with a real or simulated weapon. He is being held on a $100,000 bond in the Arapahoe County Detention Facility.

The charge stems from 11 a.m., Feb. 21, when law enforcement responded to the Key Bank on East Smoky Hill Road. A white male carrying a blue Walmart bag reportedly robbed the bank before fleeing in a tan Honda Accord. He obtained an undisclosed amount of money and left behind an unknown device, which caused law enforcement to call in the bomb squad.

Farrar appeared in court Thursday morning for advisement of his charges. Future court dates have yet to be publicly scheduled.
