ORO VALLEY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Oro Valley Police and Tucson Police worked together to arrest a man suspected of using a stolen credit card for a week.

The man arrested after allegedly robbing the Bank of America on Oracle near Wetmore on Thursday, Aug. 21 could be the same suspect that robbed the Wells Fargo Bank on Oracle and First on Aug. 12, according to Tucson Police.

OVPD says Patrice Gomis, 23, allegedly used a credit card he obtained fraudulently.

Search warrants were then obtained for his vehicle and residence, where officers said they found items connecting Gomis to the bank robbery and fraud that happened at Wells Fargo.

Detectives said Gomis walked into the bank and gave the teller a note demanding money. He also implied he had a gun. The teller gave him the money and he left.

Authorities booked Gomis into the Pima County Adult Detention Center on charges of armed robbery, fraud and forgery.
