The man arrested by Kalamazoo Public Safety officers for robbing a downtown bank is now being sought for questioning by investigators in Washington state for a child pornography case.

Daniel Solis is alleged to have robbed a Chase Bank facility on Michigan Avenue in Kalamazoo last week. Not only was a clear survivance photo captured of the suspect but police were able to locate the clothing worn during the heist, the note pad that was used to write the demand note as well as the vehicle used to flee the scene. Police say Solis has admitted to the robbery and he was charged with one count of bank robbery. In all, he made off with $7,000.

Solis is alleged to have spent $2,000 of his ill-gotten gains at a local strip club before being captured by law enforcement.

Now what started as another dumb criminal news story has made a dramatic turn as detectives from the Spokane County Sheriff’s Department say they want to question Solis in regards to a child pornography case. Authorities in Spokane recently arrested Audree Pederson, 24, of Chattaroy, Washington, according to WWMT. Pederson said she dated Solis before he moved to Kalamazoo and that he blackmailed her into performing and filming sexual acts with her 2-year-old son.

Solis faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted for the Kalamazoo bank robbery.
