Authorities say a unique tip led to the arrest of a masked bank robber who took $3,000 from a Springfield Bank last week.

Jared Turner was arrested after a former high school classmate identified him to police.

Police say Turner walked into a Great Southern Bank on West Sunshine, gave the teller a note, threatened to use a weapon and then left with the money.

Investigators say Turner admitted to the robbery.
