A woman in a bank drive-thru lane is credited with helping cops nab a suspect in the Thursday morning robbery of a bank in LeClaire. The bank was robbed at about nine a-m by a man with a handgun. A bank customer sitting in her car in the drive-thru saw the robbery and followed the alleged thief and called cops on her cell phone. A sheriff’s deputy stopped the suspect’s car in Bettendorf. Police chief Jim Pfeiffer (FY’-fer) says a sheriff’s deputy made the arrest. Seventeen-year-old Benjamin Daniel Paul of Port Byron, Illinois, is the suspect in custody. Less than an hour after the hold-up in LeClaire, a bank just across the river in Rock Island, Illinois, was robbed. No suspect in custody for that heist.
