At 10:48 a.m. today, Melbourne Police detectives spotted Steven Biest riding a bicycle in the area of NASA Boulevard and Hickory Street in Melbourne, Florida. An arrest warrant existed for Biest for the armed robbery of a Florida Business Bank located at 340 North Harbor City Boulevard.
54-year-old Biest was taken into custody without incident. Police say that he is currently being questioned by detectives and will be taken to the Brevard County Jail.
Last Wednesday, a white male in his late 40’s to early 50’s entered the bank and approached a teller. When contact was made, he drew a firearm from his pants and demanded money. At that point, the teller complied and placed a sum of cash on the counter.
The Melbourne Police Department Criminal Investigations Division is currently investigating this case and is requesting the public’s help in identifying the suspect.
