My bank was robbed

This is just a mile and a half down the street from my house.
FBI agents foiled a bank robbery July 16 at the Associated Bank of Burnsville, 2999 County Road 42, the FBI’s Minneapolis field office announced.

Agents had uncovered a plot to rob the bank, the FBI said. They arrested 36-year-old Carnovsky Deshawn Franklin, who was charged in federal court July 17 with one count of bank robbery.

Franklin arrived at the bank at around 2 p.m. and was arrested as he walked form the Chevrolet Suburban he was driving toward the bank, the FBI said.

He was found to be carrying a note demanding cash and a pair of latex gloves, the FBI said.

Agents, including an FBI SWAT team, were waiting when he arrived.

Franklin made his first appearance in U.S. District Court on July 17. He was scheduled for a detention hearing at 10:30 a.m. Monday, July 20.

This investigation was conducted by the Minneapolis field office with help from the Burnsville Police Department.
Interestingly, this guy was arrested in Richfield just 5 days before the robbery with a charge of fleeing police. The story doesn't say how the FBI knew he was about to rob the bank, but I would think the fact that he'd just been arrested has something to do with why they knew he was about to rob a bank.
