OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ A 28-year-old Logan County man is behind bars after being arrested in connection with two bank robberies in the last week.

The FBI says Shawn Keith Leniger is a suspect in yesterday's robbery of the Oklahoma State Bank in Mulhall.

They say a white male entered the branch shortly before 11 AM and handed a note to a teller. The man gathered the money and left the bank.

The FBI says Leniger is also a suspect in a similar robbery that occurred August 27th at the Oklahoma State Bank branch in Edmond.

Leniger was arrested yesterday at a Guthrie residence after the FBI says they received a tip.
