MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The FBI has arrested a South Florida man following a bizarre string of events that included the robbery of a Miami bank and a bomb threat that clogged traffic along Ocean Drive in Miami Beach.

FBI spokesman Michael Leverock said in a news release that 35-year-old Enrique Antonio Gamez of Miramar remains in federal custody Tuesday. He faces federal charges for his involvement in the Monday afternoon robbery of a Navy Federal Credit Union branch. A second person was detained, but not charged. He was later released.

Live video of the robbery and rants about Russian hacking appeared on Facebook as the two traveled from Miami to Miami Beach. The suspect climbed on top of the car and handed out cash to several people who passed by the car.
