WEST ALLIS - Police have caught a suspect after a bank robbery in West Allis.

It happened at the Equitable Bank at the corner of South 74th Street and West Oklahoma Avenue just after 10:00 a.m. Thursday.

The suspect took off, going east from the bank.

TODAY'S TMJ4 is investigating unconfirmed reports that the robber dropped money throughout some of the neighborhoods.

A detective walked away from the area having found a brown paper bag.

Employees remained inside the bank after the robbery.

It appeared to be closed for the rest of the day.
