A 26-year-old man accused of robbing two banks in the Kent and West Seattle was arrested Wednesday by the Pacific Northwest Fugitive Apprehension Task Force.

Michael Bevans, 26, was in a South Seattle motel when he was arrested, said FBI spokesman Larry Carr. The state Department of Corrections had an outstanding warrant for his arrest.

One of the robberies occurred May 15 at the U.S. Bank branch at 4200 S.W. Edmunds St., in West Seattle, Carr said. After that robbery, Seattle police and FBI agents swarmed the area, but they couldn't find the robber.

In addition to Bevans, police arrested a 36-year-old woman who is believed to have helped with the robberies.

The task force is composed of investigators from the King County Sheriff's Office, Seattle Police Department, Social Security Administration Office of the Inspector General, Department of Corrections, the State Patrol and the U.S. Marshals Service.
