On Monday, September 10, 2018, at 2:22 p.m., Washington County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a robbery at the U.S. Bank, 19091 SW Tualatin Valley Highway, in the community of Aloha. Employees called to report that a man had passed the teller a note demanding money. The suspect reportedly fled on foot and deputies began searching the area for him.
During their search of the area, deputies located a suspicious man in a nearby shopping center. After further investigation, deputies confirmed this man was the suspect from the bank robbery. Deputies arrested Brandon Ross Linder, 32 years old, and took him to the Washington County Jail.
