Authorities say a man entered the bank and loudly demanded money, saying it was a robbery, where an officer took a photo and sent it to the police department.

A K9 tracked the man, identified as 35-year-old Christopher Grannis, to an alley where police find him, according to police.

Police say Grannis refused to surrender and threatened to shoot police before they took him into custody.

Grannis is now facing charges of unarmed robbery, larceny over $1,200 and an outstanding warrant.
