BREAKING: Suspected killer in custody -- UPDATED

Prosecutor Larry Jegley says Los Angeles authorities took into custody during a traffic stop today a suspect in the Dec. 23 slaying of Metropolitan National Bank teller James Garison. Garison was shot during a robbery by a masked man who wished Merry Christmas to bank employees as he fled. He took money from the bank and a planned deposit from the retail store Beyond Cotton. Remnants of that deposit, discovered at the suspect's home, helped police obtain a warrant for the arrest.

Jegley said the suspect, Grover Evans Jr., 18, (shown in driver's license photo) was initially identified by his mother, who saw the widely distributed bank surveillance photos, and also by his stepfather and a landlord. His mother and stepfather contacted police the day after the robbery.

Little Rock police had announced earlier in the day that Evans was being sought. He had no previous criminal record and his most recent Little Rock address was on Susie Lane.

The robbery photo is below.
