One person is in custody after Thursday’s bank robbery in Chauncey.
Dodge County sheriff’s investigators traced a lead to Pierce County, where one suspect was caught after a chase that began near the town of Blackshear and ended with a crash about 3 p.m., said Capt. Tony Winborn, public information officer for the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office.
The man was charged with the bank robbery plus local charges in Pierce County.
A search warrant uncovered evidence from the robbery and an undisclosed amount of money was recovered from the Citizens Bank and Trust Co. where two masked men accosted a bank employee on the way into the bank early Thursday, Winborn said.
Never miss a local story.
Authorities expect to make other arrests and are not releasing the suspect’s name now. The FBI and GBI are assisting in the investigation, Winborn said.
