Massachusetts police reported that a bank robbery suspect who used public transportation to make his getaway, was arrested with the help of a GPS device.

Cambridge police said that 46-year-old Scott Kellerer who allegedly used a note demanding money to rob the Cambridge Savings Bank in Inman Square, was arrested 8 minutes later on a Route 91 bus in Somerville.

Officers used a GPS device a teller hid among the stolen cash to track his movements.

Police said Kellerer had the stolen $3,600 in his pocket, along with the GPS device.

“It’s a high-risk crime, and without a doubt new technology has greatly increased the chances that bank robbers will be caught,” said Special Agent Greg Comcowich, spokesman for the FBI’s Boston office.
