BARTONVILLE, Ill -- Police have arrested a man for the robbery of a Bartonville Bank Wednesday morning.

Bartonville Police Chief Brian Fengel says 30-year-old Curtis Beeney was arrested this afternoon about 4 o'clock, five hours after the bank on West Garfield Avenue was robbed.

A witness had spotted what was described as a burgundy Ford Crown Victoria leaving the scene and recorded the license plate number.

Beeney was arrested by the Peoria County Sheriff's Office and the FBI after a traffic stop on Dirksen Parkway.

Fengel says some money was recovered.

Beeney is expected to be arraigned in Federal Court later this week.
