Des Moines bank robbery suspect arrested

Jail records say an 18-year-old Des Moines bank robbery suspect remains in custody.

Police say Nicholas Nelson was arrested late Wednesday morning at his apartment.

Nelson is suspected of robbing a U.S. Bank on May 5. Police say the robber handed a note to a teller, demanding money. He got away with about $1,350 that day.

It’s unclear whether Nelson has a lawyer. Online court records don’t list the case yet.
