BOISE -- Boise Police say officers in Seattle, Wash. have arrested a man wanted in connection with an armed robbery last week.

45-year-old Patrick Lawrence Duignan from Nevada was arrested Tuesday after Seattle Police contacted him on an unrelated matter. That's when they found a $500,000 felony warrant with nationwide extradition had been issued for his arrest.

This was a very frightening crime for the victim and thanks to a solid, effective effort by both departments, this suspect is in custody. This was great work by patrol officers following the robbery to get the suspect identified. A thorough job by officers in Seattle also made this arrest possible, said Sgt. Mark Barnett of the Boise Police Department's Violent Crimes Unit.

Late last week Boise Police were called to an electronics store on the 5100 block of West Overland where witnesses say a man robbed the store with a knife.

The suspect is currently in jail in Washington state pending an extraditionhearing.
