A man who robbed a Coral Gables bank Friday and left behind a briefcase that had to be checked out by a bomb squad has been arrested, FBI officials said.

Jorge L. Farah, 56, was in custody Monday for the robbery at the Marquis Bank at 355 Alhambra Circle, officials said. He's facing federal charges and was expected to make his first court appearance Monday.
