ODESSA - The man who robbed the Compass Bank in Odessa last month has been caught.

FBI agents and Odessa Police arrested 47-year-old Anthony Alexander for one count of bank robbery.

He was picked up at a hotel around 3 p.m. Thursday afternoon.

This comes after a number of anonymous tips were sent in by the public.

You'll remember he's the man who walked into the bank on 8th Street, dressed in dark clothing, sunglasses and a cap.

He handed the bank teller a note saying he was armed then took off with some cash.

Alexander was scheduled to go before a judge on Friday morning.
