The robbery occurred at the Key Bank on Northwest Burnside Road and Eastman Parkway at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Officers dubbed the man the “Lollipop Bandit.”
Police used surveillance images to identify the suspect as 41-year-old Brandon James Ross. He was arrested and booked into the Multnomah County Jail on Wednesday on a federal bank robbery hold.
