Clackamas County Sheriff's Office deputies arrested Darrel Frank Ufford after he allegedly robbed a U.S. Bank branch in Clackamas today (Friday, March 9).

Mr. Ufford -- age 77, of Milwaukie -- is charged with today's (March 9) robbery and two additional bank robberies in Clackamas County in the last two weeks.
