Sam Penrod ReportingA man who's job it was to protect banks from being robbed is in jail this afternoon; he's accused of being a bank robber.
FBI agents have been watching the man for some time. They say they got him this afternoon in a bank parking lot just before he was getting ready to pull another job.
The suspect is wanted in three separate robberies. FBI agents were waiting in the bank parking lot before it opened this morning when the suspect showed up, apparently planning another robbery.
The suspect is 38-year old Milo Nimori of Layton. He was the security director for a bank in Kaysville. Agents say he was armed with a gun, had a police scanner with him, along with a black ski mask and backpack.
Authorities suspect Nimori of committing three banks robberies since November in Layton, Clearfield and Bountiful. None of them were with the bank Nimori worked for, but that inside knowledge of bank security may have given him away to investigators who call the string of robberies very unusual.
Jim Malpede, FBI: “As opposed to the typical impulsive robber, this individual had intimate knowledge in the operations of bank security and that created some hurdles that we had to overcome as investigators. It was not the typical bank robbery investigation.
The bank for which Namori worked for a little more than a year says it is shocked and surprised by his arrest. Because of his arrest, he has been terminated from his job.
Nimori is being held in jail and federal charges of bank robbery are being pursued.
