The Detroit News

An Eastpointe man was caught just minutes after police say he robbed a Comerica Bank branch.

Jonathon Woodward, 25, was charged with one count of bank robbery, a felony that carries a sentence of life in prison after being arraigned in 39th District Court.

Roseville Police Deputy Chief Donald Glandon said police stopped Woodward shortly after bank security called police to say the branch at Martin and Gratiot had been robbed. Woodward was driving a blue 2009 Saturn when he was stopped on Gratiot at Utica.

Police say that at about 2 p.m. Wednesday, a white male walked into the bank and handed the teller a note demanding money.

The teller gave him an unknown amount, left the bank and was last seen in a vehicle on Martin Road.

After being stopped, Woodward was arrested without incident.

Woodward was given a $100,000 bond and is next expected in court at 8:15 a.m. June 29.
