He was arrested on Saturday.

The 46-year-old is thought to have robbed the Basel-Land Kantonalbank in Oberdorf in April and then again in August. Each time he got away with several thousand francs.

Police say they received numerous tipoffs after a reward of CHF 25,000 was offered.

The money will be paid if conviction is secured.
