TAYLOR, Mich. (WWJ) –  A 27-year-old Taylor man has been charged in connection with a bank robbery Friday at the Alliance Catholic Credit Union.

Taylor police arrested Aaron Smiatacz of Taylor on Saturday as he left a Canton motel room.

It’s alleged that Smiatacz robbed the credit union on Friday around 2:15 p.m. and also showed a fake police badge in the process.

He was arraigned Tuesday on one count of bank robbery and one count of impersonating a police officer.

Smiatacz is being held on a $100,000/10 percent bond.

Bank personnel told police that they believe the Smiatacz had been in the credit union about a one week before — acting suspiciously.
