Authorities: Bank hostage drama lasted 4 hours

Posted: Updated:

 Authorities say a hostage situation at a suburban Detroit bank lasted more than four hours before ending peacefully with a suspect in custody.

Canton Township Public Safety Director Joshua Meier says an armed man who had announced a robbery at a Citizens Bank branch surrendered after releasing his hostages Thursday evening.

Meier did not disclose the suspect's name or any criminal charges he might face. He says the incident remains under investigation by police and the FBI.

Canton Township police spokeswoman Barb Caruso said earlier the suspect had released three hostages.

No injuries were reported.

Canton Township is about 30 miles west of Detroit.
