GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – A Grand Rapids man is now facing federal charges for robbing a bank in downtown Grand Rapids.

Durand Quentin Lee, 24, allegedly robbed the Huntington Bank in downtown Grand Rapids bank on Tuesday morning. Lee reportedly pointed a black “6mm BB gun” at a clerk and took off with approximately $5,600.

Grand Rapids police officer Sgt. Tom Warwick happened to be on his way to the Kent County Courthouse, which is near the bank in question, and stopped Lee after noticing suspicious behavior.

Warwick ordered Lee to the ground and eventually discovered what had happened. Lee was taken into custody without incident less than 50 feet from the bank.

The 61st District Court dropped the local charges Wednesday and the case was picked up by the Federal court.

Lee’s federal detention hearing, federal arraignment and initial pre-trial hearing are scheduled for May 6 at 11 a.m.
