Law enforcement arrested a suspect accused of robbing a bank in Incline Village Friday.

Greg Roberts, 48, was arrested Friday after a sheriff’s deputy spotted him on Mount Rose Highway.

He was charged with robbery and drug possession, according to the sheriff’s office.

Law enforcement responded to a reported robbery at the Wells Fargo in Incline Village around 10 a.m. Friday.

Surveillance video showed a suspect enter the bank wearing a baseball cap, sunglasses and a black mask covering his entire head.

He then fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash before deputies arrived, according to investigators. The FBI was brought in to assist with the investigation.

A court date has not been set, according to inmate info on the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office website. It is unclear if he has an attorney.
