Somers credited members of the public who helped identify Bishop as the suspect after police released photos to the media Monday.
They described him as wearing dark clothing and black Nike flip-flops.
No weapon was seen on the suspect, Somers said, adding the first officer arrived just 1 minute and 10 seconds after the alarm was received but did not see the suspect.
Somers also said a police dog tracked the trail the day of the robbery, to no avail.
