Corinth police on Tuesday arrested a man they believe robbed a bank Monday.

According to the Corinth Police Department, Martin Kyle Cummins, 42, is suspected of robbing the Wells Fargo, located in the 4000 block of FM 2181 in Corinth.

Police said the suspect entered the bank and gave a bank teller a note that indicated he had an explosive device. Police said he obtained an undisclosed amount of money before fleeing the bank.

Cummins is being held at the Collin County Sheriff’s Office on one count of aggravated robbery.

Denton County records show he was in February and March of this year on suspicion of theft and burglary of a habitation, respectively. He was also arrested in 2017 on suspicion of burglary of a habitation and theft. At that time he lived in Lantana.

“Some great police work resulted in this quick arrest and I am very proud of our officers,” said Corinth Police Chief Jerry Garner. “The case also provided an excellent example of the value of teamwork, as Corinth PD had terrific support from the Lake Dallas and Hickory Creek Police Departments, Denton County Sheriff, the FBI, Texas D.P.S. and the U.S. Marshals Service.”
