TUCSON, Ariz. — Authorities say two men suspected in the armed robbery of
a Tucson bank are in custody.

Tucson police said Thursday that 20-year-old Evan Curtis Hill and 48-year-old
John Murphy each have been booked into the Pima County Jail on suspicion of
armed robbery and aggravated robbery.

Both men were arrested after a chase through the city’s midtown area.

Police say a 911 call came in just before noon Wednesday about an armed robbery
at the Bank of the West.

with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police say an officer spotted a vehicle in the area believed to be linked to
the robbery.
