Police have identified the man that used a taxi as a getaway car for a bank robbery in southeast Portland last week.

Portland police arrested Wes Hamman after he allegedly robbed a Key Bank off of southeast Hawthorne on April 20.

Officials said Hamman entered the bank and handed a teller a note that said he had a gun and wanted money.

Hamman left the bank with about $2,200. Police quickly found him in the backseat of a taxi, according to court documents.

Hamman told police he needed the money to fix his car.
