A Milan man was arrested Monday for allegedly robbing a bank in Moline. 

Nicholas J. Conklin, 41, has been charged with aggravated robbery and is being held in the Rock Island County Jail on a $75,000 bond, according to a news release from the Moline Police Department.

Moline police responded to the robbery at 2:05 p.m. at TBK Bank on 2040 1st Street A, in Moline. Conklin allegedly inferred he was armed with a gun and threatened an employee. He left the bank with a large amount of cash in a silver Toyota Corolla. 

Moline detectives sent surveillance video showing Conklin and the car to other local police departments and a Bettendorf helped Moline identify Conklin from the surveillance footage. 

Police served a search warrant at Conklin's address in Milan Monday night and he was taken into custody without incident.

The Moline Police Department was assisted by the Bettendorf Police Department, Davenport Police Department, Rock Island County Sherriff’s Department, Milan Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Anyone with information on this robbery is encouraged to contact the Moline Police Department’s Special Investigations Group at 309-524-2131 or Crime Stoppers of the Quad Cities at 309-762-9500 or use the free mobile app P3 Tips.
