The Man Who Lit A Mailbox On Fire Last Friday, Arrested Thursday After Robbing A Bank

The man who burned down a mailbox last week at a Flagstaff Safeway, was arrested again Thursday afternoon after he robbed a Wells Fargo Bank. Flagstaff Police were called to the bank on the 12-hundred block of South Milton Road at around 12:36 p.m. When they arrived, bank staff told officers the man produced a note and told them to place cash into an envelope. The man was given an undisclosed amount of money and left. Officers searched the area and found the suspect who matched the description. He has been identified as 66-year-old Robert Rickman, who was arrested last Friday after lighting a mailbox on fire at the Safeway store on South Plaza Way. Rickman was searched for weapons and none were found. He has been booked into the Coconino County Jail on one count of robbery. No one was hurt in the incident.
