NAPLES, Fla. - A man suspected of robbing an East Naples Wells Fargo bank Monday morning is dead.

Deputies responded to the bank robbery just before 10 a.m. The robber, wearing a mask, had fled the scene on a bicycle. It did not take long for investigators to identify Stewart as a suspect and he was tracked to the hotel.
Stewart was last reported living at the St. Matthews House Shelter.
