A Minneapolis police officer was pulled over by an Apple Valley cop minutes before a robbery at a nearby Wells Fargo bank on Wednesday, a break that eventually led to his arrest in connection with a series of robberies in the area, according to federal charges filed Thursday.
Timothy Edward Carson, 28, was booked into the Dakota County Jail early Thursday morning on probable cause of first-degree aggravated robbery and appeared in federal court in St. Paul on Thursday afternoon, charged with bank robbery.
The Wells Fargo robbery, committed at 9:16 a.m. Wednesday, was the latest of four in the city that Apple Valley police believed were committed by the same person.
The charges say Carson was pulled over for having no visible front license plate on his vehicle, a white Mitsubishi Galant, at 8:37 a.m. Carso
