DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Federal authorities say a Crime Stoppers tip led them to a man who allegedly shot a customer during a robbery at a South Florida bank.
The U.S. Attorney's Office in Miami says the FBI arrested 43-year-old Michael Anthony Price of Coconut Creek on Tuesday. Price is charged with bank robbery. A detention hearing is scheduled next week.
Authorities say Price jumped the teller counter last week at the Amtrust Bank in Deerfield Beach and took money from several drawers. As he jumped back over the counter, authorities say he shot a 67-year-old customer in the neck before fleeing.
The customer remains hospitalized in critical but stable condition.
Authorities say Price also is linked to another bank robbery in Boca Raton.
