LUBBOCK, Texas -

Hours after a mid-day robbery of the Wells Fargo branch near Texas Tech, Lubbock Police arrested a man who appeared ready to hop on a bus out of town.

Investigators say Demetrius Spence, 50, handed a teller a note, demanding cash. He didn't show a weapon and did not indicate he had one.

A few hours later, police caught him at the bus station downtown. They say he had a ticket in-hand. According an LPD media release, Spence had an active federal warrant for bank robbery. He will be booked at the Lubbock County Detention Center.
