MOORHEAD - When Clay County Sheriff Bill Bergquist saw the suspected bank robber running toward him, the man spotted him at the same moment and jumped over a fence into a yard in north Moorhead.


Bergquist didn't have to be so hasty. He used a gate to enter the yard and approach his winded quarry.

"He (the suspect) was getting pretty tired by then," Bergquist said. "I hadn't been running, so that's where it ended."
