Posted: Updated:

A "career criminal" who fled to Las Vegas after a bank robbery in Oregon was taken into custody earlier this month, the FBI said.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation said Friday members of a Las Vegas-based Criminal Apprehension Team arrested Harvey Merriweather on March 14.

The FBI said Merriweather, who is on federal probation for bank robbery, was suspected of holding up a bank branch in Portland, Ore. on March 11.

A tip led fugitive task force members to seek and apprehend Merriweather in Las Vegas.

Authorities did not provide details of the bank robbery that prompted the manhunt.

The FBI noted the task force comprises of law enforcement officers from Las Vegas Metro and Henderson police departments, as well as agents from the Bureau.
