Robbery Suspect: Going to Use the Money to Bail Someone Out of Jail

February 06, 2015 10:28 PM

A Duluth man has been charged with aggravated robbery and being a felon in possession of a firearm in connection with Thursday's bank robbery.

22-year-old Abraham Maada Lamin appeared in court on Friday.

Police said that he walked into the Wells Fargo bank branch in Cub Foods around noon on Thursday. The criminal complaint said he walked up to a teller, pulled out a small silver handgun, and demanded money.

The complaint said he told her to hurry up, and "Don't try and funny business."

The teller was able to activate the silent alarm. 

Multiple police and law enforcement squads rushed to the scene. They were able to track Lamin using a trail of loose cash, footprints, and citizen tips. 

They found him in the nearby lobby of the Residence Inn Marriott.

The complaint said Lamin told officers that he was going to use some of the money from the robbery as bail for someone who is in jail.

Now he's in jail. 

Lamin has a criminal record that includes prior convictions of aggravated robbery and burglary.
