Two men suspected of robbing multiple Portland-area banks picked the wrong bank at the wrong time for their next target.

Police said several banks were hit between Nov. 16 and 18. A man in each case presented a note to tellers demanding money.

Investigators from Portland, Gresham, Scappoose, Clackamas County and Washington County all worked together to share information on the cases and develop possible suspects.

At 7 p.m. Tuesday, detectives were continuing their investigation at a bank inside the Wood Village Fred Meyer store, 22855 N.E. Park Lane, when they said the suspects showed up to rob the place.

Officers said Ryan Beisley, 29, and Travis Johnson, 20, attempted to run away, but they were caught and taken into custody by robbery detectives.

They were booked in the Multnomah County Jail on a U.S. Marshals hold and formal federal bank robbery charges are pending.

Both men were scheduled to make their initial court appearance Wednesday afternoon.
