    He said he's not sure how long Quigley had been hiding in the car, but it looked as if he had been awake for a long time.

    "It looked like he had been up for a long time," he said. "(He looked) cold, and he didn't really respond except for doing exactly what I told him to.

    "I just told him to get on the ground and that everything was over, and that I had a weapon on him and I'm calling 911, and that's about it."

    He said he was "absolutely" concerned that Quigley might have had a weapon, which is why he was armed during the incident.

    "Once I got him facedown, that was it," he said.

    Police 'relieved' after long manhunt ends

    Miller said he's "very relieved" that the search ended with an arrest.

    "It's been a tremendous effort by everyone," Miller said. "I can't help the residents of the township and the people of the village for all the calls they gave us. ... It was a great effort by everyone and we're glad it's over."

    Miller said Quigley is being held at the Oakland County Jail and will be interviewed by detectives.

    Quigley doesn't have any injuries.

    "I've been on the phone with the FBI, the Border Patrol was out here," Miller said. "Our Violent Crime Task Force with the FBI came out for assistance. We have K-9 units from West Bloomfield and Rochester City. The (Michigan State Police) were getting ready, we told them once these dogs get a little tired we were going to bring their dogs over to relieve them. So just a tremendous effort."

    Police have released the surveillance footage of the bank robbery in Warren on Wednesday.

    A bank teller was doused in gasoline during the robbery and was told that she would be set on fire if she didn't give the robber money.

    A $20,000 reward is being offered by Huntington Bank representatives for information leading to an arrest.

    "It's deranged," Warren Police Commissioner Bill Dwyer said.

    The man had medical gauze taped to his face to disguise his appearance and approached a bank manager and asked about opening a checking account.

    The man then spoke briefly with a teller before pulling out a plastic spray bottle and squirting gasoline on her, telling the teller that she would be set on fire unless money was handed over.

    "This is not your typical robbery," Dwyer said.

    He pursued the woman around the bank, threatening her with a cigarette and a lighter, before she could lock herself in a bathroom. The manager filled a black duffel bag for the man, and he fled with about $4,000.

    "It's a very disturbing one," Dwyer said. "That's why we want to get him arrested as soon as possible."

    The bank robber was described as black, 25 to 30 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighs 150 pounds and had gauze bandage on his face. He was wearing gray sweatpants, a black hooded sweatshirt, a black down vest, a blue and gray baseball cap and a glove on his right hand.

    The FBI is investigating alongside Warren police detectives.

    The bank employee was treated by EMS at the scene and was not injured.
