“He fell as he came over, at which time he had a gun in one hand and a black bag in the other hand. He then began to demand money,” the affidavit said.
Newport then allegedly ran out of the bank and tried to flag a man down to give him a ride to his house, for which he gave him “a wad of one hundreds and fifties,” the affidavit said.
A few hours after the robbery, officers and Clark County Sheriff’s Office deputies found the car that Newport was driving at an apartment complex on Delta Road and tried to stop him, but he ran off, according to the affidavit.
While law enforcement officers searched for him, others searched the car he was driving and found a handgun and a red bag with a mask in it, the affidavit says.
About six hours after the robbery, officers received information that Newport was hiding in a dumpster at Kenwood Elementary School on Nagley Street — where he was found and taken into custody.
A next court date in Newport’s case has not yet been scheduled.
