      *** END UPDATE ***

      Police say a bank robbery suspect is surrounded in a deer blind near Bancroft just north of I-69 in Shiawassee County.

      Officers have him trapped in a one-mile perimeter, as of 10:45pm on Monday.

      The man is accused of robbing a bank in Okemos and then leading them on a chase to Shiawassee County. He headed east on I-69 toward Bancroft where police forced him into the median. His car got stuck in the snow and he ran into the woods. Helicopters and K-9 units were brought in to track him down.

      The sheriff says he is sure the suspect is the man officers have surrounded in the deer blind.
