Port Angeles: Bank robbery suspect arrested in Vancouver, Wash.

PORT ANGELES — The man who allegedly slipped a note to a teller Thursday afternoon and calmly left a downtown bank with a bag of stolen money has been arrested in Vancouver.

James Lavon Lewis, 35, the Port Angeles resident who authorities say robbed Bank of America of an unknown amount money, is being held in a Clark County jail.

He will be transported to either federal or Clallam County facilities this week to face felony charges for first-degree robbery.

Lewis’ arrest on Friday came barely 24 hours after he allegedly showed a note to a bank teller at 102 E. Front St. demanding cash, then stuffed the money into a brown paper bag and calmly walked out.
