Alleged Bank Robber Arrested Near Bank

A suspect has been arrested for robbing a Redding bank this week. Tuesday afternoon, a man robbed the Tri-Counties Bank in the Westwood Village Shopping Center off Highway 273 in South Redding. He got away on foot and, despite an extensive search of the area, the robber was not found. A description was sent out to local media and Thursday Redding Police got an anonymous tip that led them to 26-year-old Christopher Dunne. Investigators got a search warrant and Thursday afternoon the SWAT Team surrounded Dunne's home on Jewell Lane, less than a half-mile from the bank. Dunne was booked into jail for robbery and violation of his post-release supervision.
