(KSL News) -- A 61-year old man is behind bars tonight for allegedly robbing a Clearfield bank.
Police say Thomas Peek walked into a Wells Fargo around 10:30 this morning. He allegedly handed the teller a note requesting money.
Investigators say the teller gave him a minimal amount, claiming that was all she had. Peek then fled.
Greg Krusi, Asst. Chief, Clearfield Police Dept.: "He went into a former friend's home, told the firend he's just robbed the bank; and we had some people on the bus stop that also indicated they'd seen him run to that home."
Officers found and arrested him at the home. They believe he had been drinking.
Investigators say Peek didn't have a weapon, and never threatened to use one.
