A 34-year-old man was in custody at the Collier County jail Friday evening after detectives say he robbed an East Naples bank Tuesday.

Detectives arrested Bower James Thomas, 2425 Outrigger Lane, East Naples, at his residence shortly before 5 p.m. Thomas was booked into the Collier County jail on robbery and grand theft charges.

Detectives said Thomas entered the Fifth Third Bank at 4025 Radio Road wearing a ball cap and sunglasses shortly after 11 a.m. Tuesday. He passed the teller a note demanding money. He also indicated he had a weapon.

The teller complied and Thomas made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

A tip from the public led detectives to Thomas after CCSO released photos and video of the suspect from the bank's video surveillance cameras.
