Tucson Bank Bandit Nabbed LOS ANGELES, April William Roy Miller, 49, was ar- rested here today as a suspect in the holdup of the Southern Arizona Bank and Trust Company in Tucson Feb. 13. Miller, sought throughout the Southwest since he held up the bank and escaped with a sackful of coins and currency weighing 35 pounds, was spotted by two Los Angeles police officers who recognized him from photographs. The Federal Bureau of Investi- gation office later positively iden- tified Miller from fingerprints. He was taken into custody only two weeks after his photo was distributed to the nation's law en- forcement agencies by the FBI in a general identification order. Police officers Jack S. Gable and Melvin E. Harner were cred- ited with the suspect's arrest. They said Miller apparently was drunk when they picked him up. He talked freely about the holdup but later denied some of his statements. Miller walked into the Tucson bank 10 minutes before closing Feb. 13. pulled out a snub-nosed revolver and ordered a vaul't teller to give him the money he was counting. The loot included in nick- els which Miller placed in a paper bag. He stuffed the other money in a canvas money bag and ran onto the street. The paper'bag broke, spilling the nickels.
