Suspicious note at bank leads to police call

WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM)-A note passed to a bank teller led to some tense moments at a Wyoming bank Saturday.

Police were called to the Chase Bank at 4333 S. Division Ave. Saturday morning, for a suspicious situation believed to be a robbery. Officers surrounded the business and took the possible suspect into custody.

However, after further interviews, detectives determined the person who handed over the note was trying to get help from police, not rob the bank.
