WAITE PARK, Minn. (KNSI) Waite Park police say they've arrested a man suspected of robbing a local gas station and a bank.

Police Chief Dave Bentrud says officers arrested 48 year-old Michael Allen Simpson of St. Cloud Wednesday after a search warrant was executed at a home in the 1400 block of Westwind Road in St. Cloud.

Simpson is facing two counts of aggravated robbery. One robbery occurred at the MidCountry Bank inside CashWise Foods in July of 2012. The second robbery happened last month at the SuperAmerica gas station on Third Street North in Waite Park.

Simpson was being held in the Stearns County Jail.
