St. Cloud police say the suspect sought in connection to a bank robbery last month was arrested on March 6 at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
A release said 28-year-old Khalid Hassan Mohamud, a Utah resident with family connections in the St. Cloud area, was taken into custody based on a Utah Department of Corrections warrant for unrelated charges.
The release said the investigation, tips from the public, and other "public safety professionals" led to Mohamud being identified as the suspect in a bank robbery at a Wells Fargo Bank, located at 200 33rd Avenue South, on Feb. 22.
Police said at the time the suspect entered the bank, handed a note to the teller and demanded money. He then left with an undisclosed amount of money.
While he indicated he had a weapon, police said the suspect never displayed one.
The release Monday said a Stearns County warrant for Mohamud was issued in connection to the incident last week.
He was being held at Hennepin County Jail awaiting extradition back to Utah. But the release said he has now been transferred to the Stearns County Jail.
