Wichita police have arrested a 50-year-old male suspect for the Conway Bank robbery downtown.

Early Thursday afternoon, investigators received a Crime Stoppers tip from a citizen, leading them to an area on the south side of Wichita; the suspect, Brent Drees, was located and arrested in the 1700 block of S. Laura, south of Harry & Southeast Blvd.

A criminal complaint and affidavit alleges that on Oct. 9 Drees robbed the Conway Bank east of Kellogg & Main. Drees was wearing a baseball cap and jeans when he entered the bank and gave a teller a note saying, “Give me $3,000 and you won’t get hurt.”

Drees was released from Bureau of Prisons custody in July 2017 after serving a nearly four-year sentence for bank robbery.
