A truck out of place leads to arrest of suspect

(Continued)

In the days following Bayko’s arrest, Hreha has been lauded a hero by both bank officials and law enforcement. Gracious tellers thanked him for stepping forward and gave him a $100 reward.

“They were so grateful to me. But the main thing is nobody got hurt,” Hreha said. “The guy robbed my bank and scared a lot of people — it’s just not right. When someone just threatens other people, I just don’t go for that.”

Police officers, including Chief Thomas Fowler, called to congratulate him.

“Like the officers all said, ‘it’s people like you,’” Herha said, referring to the importance of the public reaching out to police when they see something suspicious.
