Roseville Police have arrested a man who allegedly robbed a Comerica Bank at 27990 Gratiot Ave. during the morning Feb. 16.

Roseville Deputy Police Chief Don Glandon said in an email that Richard Mckinney, 28, of Washington Township, was taken into custody without incident at around 7 p.m. Feb. 16. The arrest took place in Detroit.

According to a press release by Glandon, Mckinney was arraigned Feb. 17 in 39th District Court and charged with bank robbery and tampering with an electronic monitoring device. The press release said that Mckinney allegedly removed an electronic tether prior to the bank robbery. If convicted, he faces up to life in prison.

The press release said that the robbery took place at 10:20 a.m. Mckinney allegedly entered the bank and produced a note demanding money from a teller. The teller complied and handed over an undetermined amount of cash, at which point Mckinney allegedly fled the scene on foot.

The robber did not show or indicate that he had a weapon in any way, the press release said, and he was last seen heading northbound on foot. No vehicle was observed, police said.

No injuries were reported during the robbery.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Roseville Police Department at (586) 775-2100 or (586) 416-1228.

Mckinney’s next court date was scheduled for Feb. 24. Mckinney had a not guilty plea entered at his arraingment, and he had requested a court-appointed attorney. The attorney had not been named at press time.
