MADISON, Wis. -

A man arrested on suspicion of two Madison bank robberies was motivated by a heroin addiction, according to a release from Madison police.

Chad A. Legner, 40, of Reedsburg, was arrested on Sauk County on a probation hold the afternoon after the Feb. 21 robbery of a Wells Fargo Bank on East Towne Boulevard. Police said a K9 led officers to evidence that helped identify Legner.

Police said Legner is also connected to the Feb. 3 robbery of a US Bank branch also on East Towne Boulevard.

The lead detective said Legner is likely to face charges for other crimes in the area.
