OBSERVANT CITIZEN HELPS RPD NAB BANK ROBBER

(Richmond, IN)--An observant citizen who was willing to get involved helped Richmond police catch an alleged bank robber Monday afternoon.  Investigators say 41-year-old Jason Cavins had demanded cash from a teller at the U.S. Bank branch in the 1700 block of National Road West.  A resident on South West 17th saw a suspicious man getting into a van and called police.  That van was stopped near McBride Stadium.  Cavins was found hiding in the back of the van, which was being driven by his wife.  She has not been charged.  A large amount of cash was recovered.
