Posted: Updated:

A man who allegedly robbed a Bank of America branch office in the Carmel Mountain area today was arrested a few miles away while walking a dog, authorities reported.

The robbery in the 11800 block of Carmel Mountain Road was reported about 9:45 a.m., according to San Diego police.

Witnesses told investigators the bandit fled in silver Mercedes-Benz, SDPD Sgt. Ray Battrick said.

Later in the day, officers found the sedan parked in Rancho Bernardo and spotted a pedestrian matching the description of the bank bandit taking a dog for a walk nearby, in the 15600 block of Camino del Norte, according to Battrick.

The man, whose name was not immediately available, was arrested after a witness to the robbery positively identified him as the alleged perpetrator, the sergeant said.
