Vazquez was taken into custody without incident at his residence at 211-36 Ashe Ave. and has been transported to the Wake County Detention Center.

The information below was distributed at 3:02 p.m. March 9:

Shortly after 11 a.m. today, Raleigh Police Department officers responded to a robbery call at the Wells Fargo bank at 601 Oberlin Rd. The male suspect seen in the surveillance photos above entered the bank, issued a robbery demand to a teller and fled on foot after the teller complied. A weapon was not displayed during the crime.

The suspect was described as standing 5 feet 7-8 inches tall and having a thin build. He has salt-and-pepper hair and was wearing a black jacket and dark pants.

Today’s suspect strongly resembles the male who was responsible for bank robberies committed Dec. 8 at Wells Fargo’s 2600 Hillsborough St. location and Jan. 8 at the location that was robbed today.
