A gun-wielding Dion Morgan allegedly held up Liberty Savings Bank in Lakewood, Colorado Tuesday morning. He then proceeded to hop on his bike for a not-so-speedy getaway.

According to The Denver Post, the suspect was found shortly afterward:

Lakewood police agents spotted Morgan on a bike at Florida Avenue and Carr Street and pulled him over. In his possession were both the gun and money.

Channel 7 reports that Morgan was only on the "run" for about six minutes. He was taken to the Lakewood Police department where he was booked for investigation of armed robbery.

Snowy Denver roads may have hampered his exit: Morgan made it a little under a mile before his capture.
