WALLA WALLA, Wash. -- Walla Walla Police say they have found a suspect in a bank robbery, but he's already in jail.

Tuesday, Walla Walla Police said DNA testing linked 40-year-old Bradley Monical to the robbery of a Banner Bank in September of last year. In that robbery, the suspect was wearing a cowboy hat. investigators say they think the same man also robbed the U.S. Bank on Columbia Center Boulevard in Kennewick in October, this time wearing a bicycle helmet. He is also suspected of robbing a bank in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, again, wearing a bike helmet.

It turns out Monical was arrested for robbing yet another bank in Coos Bay, Oregon last April. Kennewick Police say they haven't been contacted by Walla Walla Officers, Coos Bay Police or the FBI yet.
