Tallahassee Bank Robbery Suspect Caught

It all started at the Envision Credit Union on U.S. 27 North around 12:30. Investigators say the suspect drove up in a blue truck to the Envision Credit Union.

The robbery suspect was the only one to get out of the truck. Investigators say there were two others with him in the truck.

The suspect walked up to the teller with a note. He demanded money and implied he had a weapon. However, the teller later told investigators that she didn't actually see a weapon.

Once the suspect got what he came for, he took off in that blue truck.

SGT Paul Pruett of the Leon County Sheriff's Office says, "As they left the parking lot, another bank employee, she was able to obtain the tag and she provided that to the first deputy on scene and we put that out on the radio of surrounding counties."

The suspect's truck was spotted by a Tallahassee police officer and stopped in the area of Jackson Bluff and Gaines Street.

One arrest was made; two others were questioned and released.

Robbery task force investigators say this marks the 12th bank robbery in Tallahassee-Leon County this year, which is unusually high as compared to years past.

Two of those bank robberies remain unsolved at this time: one at the Florida Commerce Bank at Maclay Commons, the other at the Farmers Merchant Bank at Monroe and Talpico.
