Authorities identified the suspect from Thursday morning’s robbery at State Bank and Trust Co. on Pio Nono Avenue as 29-year-old Kevin Trevin Foster of Macon, according to a Bibb County Sheriff’s Office news release.
Members of the Southeastern Regional Fugitive Task Force and the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office Special Investigation Unit found Foster and several others at the Quality Inn on Chambers Road after a Crimestoppers tip was called in that helped identify Foster.
About 9:45 a.m., sheriff’s officials said Foster entered the bank and handed a bank teller a deposit slip bearing a demand for money, sheriff’s Lt. Sean DeFoe said. No weapon was displayed during robbery, and no one was injured.
The bank, at 3945 Pio Nono Ave., has been the target of past robberies or attempts.
In July 2013, a bank customer was knocked to the ground by an armed robber at the bank’s ATM. In April 2010, two men tried to rob an off-duty police officer, but they ran off when the officer drew his gun.
Tom Woodbery, marketing director for State Bank, wouldn’t comment or provide any other details about Thursday’s robbery, directing questions to the authorities.
However, he said customers were notified several months ago that the Pio Nono bank location plans to close at the end of this month as part of a branch consolidation effort.
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call police at 751-7500 or Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 877-68-CRIME.
