BROOKINGS - State and federal crime agents have arrested a suspect in a bank robbery earlier this month in the eastern South Dakota town of Toronto.

The FBI says 38-year-old Nathan Reisetter was arrested Tuesday at his workplace in Brookings. He is from the town of White, which is less than 20 miles from Toronto.

Authorities say a man armed with a semi-automatic handgun robbed the First Bank and Trust in Toronto on Jan. 2, giving a trash bag to an employee and demanding money from the bank's vault. He fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Authorities say they are investigating whether Reisetter might be linked to other unsolved bank robberies.
