Lt. Sidney Allen of the Little Rock police reports that Bobby Ford, 46, of Little Rock has been arrested in the robberies of two U.S. Bank branches — on West Markham Street and Baseline Road — in the last week.

Allen said a detective working off duty saw Ford driving a car believed used in the Markham branch robbery. He and patrol officers stopped the car. Ford ran, but was caught after a brief chase. Officers had previously identified Ford as a suspect and were returning from his house when he was spotted.
