Suspect Arrested in Owasso Bank Robbery
Owasso police have arrested a suspect in a bank robbery at IBC Bank in Owasso Saturday afternoon.
The Owasso PD says they received a tip about the possible identity of the suspect from an outside agency and after an investigation, they arrested Steven Auten shortly after midnight today. Auten is currently at Owasso Municipal Jail and is awaiting transport to the Tulsa County Jail.
Police responded to the bank robbery shortly before 3 p.m. Saturday at IBC Bank, located at 9350 North Garnett Road.
The suspect reportedly told an employee that he would detonate the building if he wasn't provided with money. The suspect received money and had left the bank by the time officers arrived on scene.
Before Owasso PD and detectives could process the scene, the Tulsa Bomb Squad had to clear the bank to make sure no explosives were present.
