WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Police arrested a man early Saturday morning for a Friday afternoon bank robbery. Detectives had gotten a warrant Friday for 26-year-old Brenden Paul Kolterjahn, 26, in connection with the armed robbery of the TD Bank at 802 S. College Road.
Officers developed information Friday evening that Kolterjahn was at the Travelodge at 4118 Market Street. WPD
units converged on the scene and made contact with Kolterjahn. He surrendered without incident around 2 a.m.
The arrest came a little more than 12 hours after the bank robbery. Police say the suspect had a note threatening bank tellers with a gun, but he never showed a weapon. Employees handed over cash and the robber left.
Kolterjahn was booked into the New Hanover County Jail under $25,000 secured bond. According to Department of Corrections records, Kolterjahn is on five years probation for a May 2009 conviction in Onslow County on a series of crimes, including breaking & entering, forgery and obtaining property by false pretense.
