DEARBORN — The man accused of robbing the Bank of America, 13024 Michigan Ave. Dec. 6 was arrested and arraigned for the crime.

Lamar Tremane Dunn, 42, of Detroit, was arraigned before 19th District Court Judge William Hultgren Dec. 10 on the charge of bank robbery, which carries a penalty of up to life in prison.

Dunn will also be charged as a habitual offender due to another bank robbery conviction from 2009.

Bond was set by Hultgren at $250,000 cash or surety with a GPS unit upon release.

Dunn has a preliminary examination of the evidence against him scheduled for 9 a.m. Dec. 20 before 19th District Court Judge Mark Somers.

According to police, Dunn presented a note to a teller demanding money and threatening harm. After the robbery he escaped with an undetermined amount of cash before police arrived.

Dunn was arrested by police Dec. 9 following their investigation into the robbery.

Police Chief Ronald Haddad commended Sgt. Derrick Hadder for his “attention to detail” that resulted in the swift identification of Dunn.

“Sergeant Hadder conducted a records and booking photo search and found that Dunn’s previous booking photo bared a distinct resemblance to the suspect who committed this robbery,” Haddad said. “Dunn was previously arrested and convicted for bank robbery in August 2009 and was paroled in September of 2013.”
