West Mifflin police have arrested a man in connection with the robbery of the Huntington Bank on Route 51 near Century III Mall, a spokesman said.
William Eger, 51, was arrested Tuesday morning, said borough police Chief Ken Davies.
"The investigation of this incident was greatly enhanced by the cooperation of the media, the public and our own social media pages," Davies said. "With the tips received via tips lines we eventually were directed to the actor who then gave us incriminating statements of his involvement with the robbery."
The bank was robbed at about 9:15 a.m. Saturday morning by a man described as a white male, 5-feet-8, with a brown hair, beard and mustache. He was wearing a dark-colored, hooded sweatshirt, winter cap, jeans and tennis shoes, and fled the scene on foot toward Century III.
West Mifflin police and the FBI are investigating the incident.
