Police say murder suspect arrested at US border

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -- Police say the man wanted in a deadly armored car heist at a university in western Canada has been arrested by U.S. border officials in Washington state.

Edmonton police said Saturday in a news release that Travis Baumgartner was stopped near a border crossing in Lynden, Washington, southwest of Abbotsford, British Columbia. They said Baumgartner was in his pickup truck and was alone.

Baumgartner had been on the run since Friday when four armed guards were gunned down, three of them fatally.

Police have said Baumgartner was the fifth member of a crew that was re-loading bank machines at a university mall where the shooting happened. The 21-year-old faces three counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted murder.
