OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma law enforcement authorities have arrested a man they say robbed a bank while dressed as a nun.

The Oklahoman reports that 27-year-old Kyle Richard of Yukon was arrested Friday in Mustang. Richard is accused of robbing the Yukon National Bank on Tuesday.

The FBI says during the robbery the suspect wore an old woman's mask with what appeared to be a nun's habit.

The robber drove away in a black four-door car with chrome wheels. Authorities didn't disclose how much money was taken.

Authorities were able to track down Richard thanks to a vehicle description and license plate number given by a witness at the bank.

Richard was taken to the Grady County jail, where he will be held until his initial appearance in federal court.
