TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Thanks to help from a witness, the Tucson Police Department was able to locate and arrest a suspect in two attempted and one successful robbery.  

According to a TPD news release, on Wednesday, Dec. 20 there was a robbery attempt at the Compass Bank at 5045 East Broadway, a witness provided officers with a vehicle description and a partial license plate.  An officer with the K9 unit identified an address where the suspect's vehicle was supposed to be.  

Officers responded to the address and found the vehicle, and the suspect identified as 32-year-old Kyle Reid. Evidence obtained at the same location matched the disguise that Reid allegedly used during the robbery attempts.
