Police arrested 48-year-old Sandine LaGrand Friday after the bank was held up earlier in the day. It was not immediately clear how much money was taken. The robber entered Klamath First bank in this coastal town and passed a teller a note demanding money. After the teller handed over the cash, the man left the bank and fled on foot. A short time later Jared Torgison - whose mother is the manager at the bank - was on the street across from the bank, when a man approached him and asked for directions to the bus station, explaining that he had to get out of town quickly, police said. Torgison, whose mother had told him about the robbery, thought LaGrande looked like the suspect: a white man with short blond hair, wearing a gray sweat shirt and blue jeans. Torgison called the bank on his cell phone and told employees to look outside and verify that the man was the one who robbed the bank, police said. They did. Officers arrested LaGrande a few blocks from the bank and charged him with second-degree robbery. Dumb ass.
