Man arrested near Boise school after armed bank robbery

A man was arrested for an armed robbery at a credit union in Boise Thursday afternoon.

Boise Police were called to a credit union on the 500 block of Highland around 1:47 p.m. Officers say the man took money from two bank tellers and a customer before getting away.

BPD was able to find the suspect, who was identified as Robert Stout, near Sage International School. To be safe, police asked the school to "shelter in place."

He was arrested around 2:15 p.m. without any incident.

“We would like to thank all of the citizens who noticed what was going on and helped officers locate evidence,” said Boise Police Sgt. Justin Kendall. “Their assistance helped lead to the arrest of the suspect and we sincerely appreciate their cooperation.”

Stout was booked into the Ada County Jail on three counts of felony burglary.
