MARQUETTE - A federal extradition hearing is expected in Wyoming to determine how a 29-year-old man suspected of robbing $1,082 from the Northern Michigan Bank & Trust branch in Harvey last week will return to Marquette to face a federal armed bank robbery charge in U.S. District Court.

At a glance

A federal hearing will determine whether a suspected bank robber will return to Marquette to face an armed bank robbery charge.

The robbery occurred at about 1:15 p.m. Wednesday, when a white male walked into the bank at the plaza near the intersection of U.S. 41 and M-28, flashed a black automatic pistol and told the teller to fill a bag with money.

The suspect left on foot and headed north past a drive-thru window toward a wooded area at the rear of the plaza.

Zyburt said police do not know why the man headed to Wyoming.
