By KATU Web Staff PORTLAND, Ore. - A bank robber used a peculiar getaway vehicle Tuesday morning: a TriMet bus.
After the man robbed the U.S. Bank branch at Southwest 6th Avenue and Southwest Washington Street about 10 a.m., he got on the bus, which headed toward northwest Portland, according to Beth Anne Steele, an FBI spokeswoman.
Police pulled over the bus at the intersection of Northwest 4th Avenue and Northwest Everett Street and took a man off it at gunpoint, she said. It was not clear how they tracked the man - and bus - down.
Investigators were trying to determine if the man is a suspect in other robberies. His name was not immediately released.
