Bank robbery arrest made

Oklahoma City Police arrested a man around noon Tuesday who allegedly robbed the OU Federal Credit Union in Norman last week.

Dontae Lamar Galloway, 23, of Oklahoma City, was charged in the U.S. District Court, Western District of Oklahoma, on Monday for the robbery of the OU Federal Credit Union at 2000 W. Lindsey St.

Galloway allegedly robbed the bank on May 7. After Galloway was charged, a federal arrest warrant was issued.

Oklahoma City police arrested the 23-year-old at an apartment complex in the 2800 block of Southwest 59th Street in Oklahoma City. He was arrested without incident, according to an FBI press release.

Galloway also is believed to be responsible for the robbery of the Bank of Oklahoma, 3501 N.W. Expressway in Oklahoma City, on Thursday, the release stated.

“The FBI would like to thank the Oklahoma City Police Department, Norman Police Department and the Tecumseh Police Department for their assistance in this investigation resulting in today’s arrest,” the release stated Tuesday. “The public is reminded a charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.”
