An Arlington, Ariz. man was arrested Feb. 15 by Gallup Police in connection with a bank robbery in Gallup.

Casey Erin Davenport, 41, was charged with robbery and tampering with evidence.

According to the criminal complaint filed against him, Gallup Police were dispatched to the Wells Fargo Bank, 300 West Aztec Ave., about 1:46 pm in connection with a bank robbery.

Bank officials told police that an older man, described as being about 5 feet, 8 inches in height with green eyes and wearing a cowboy hat and a blue and white striped shirt, had walked into the bank, went to one of the tellers, and demanded money.

White gave him an unspecified amount of money and he then left the bank, going out the south exit.

A short time later, police received a tip that a man matching that description was seen throwing a shirt into a trash can. Police went to the area and found the man, who was later identified as Davenport.
