TULSA, OK -- A bank that was robbed this month is giving back to the organization that helped catch the suspect in its robbery.

A tip to Crime Stoppers led to the arrest of a man who's accused of robbing the Commerce Bank on February 9th.

On Thursday, the bank presented a $1,000 check to the Tulsa Crime Commission for their help finding the suspect.

"We want to do something nice for the Tulsa Police Department.  They absolutely did their jobs in an impeccable manner and caught the bad guy and put him away and we can't be more pleased that no one was harmed in our incident and we can't say enough for the Tulsa Police Department," said Commerce Bank's Steve Austin.

Crime Stoppers has been in Tulsa for 30 years.   In that time, the anonymous tip line has led to arrests in 4,500 felony cases and recovered more than $5 million in stolen property and narcotics.
