AmSouth Bank branch robber arrested

FROM STAFF REPORTS

Police have arrested a suspect in a Hoover bank robbery.

FBI officials said a black male, described as heavy set and about 30 years of age, entered the AmSouth Bank branch at 102 Inverness Plaza this morning, flashed a handgun and demanded money from employees. No one was injured.

The robber left the scene on foot, but FBI officials think he may have later fled in a darkly colored Ford Crown Victoria with a Georgia license plate.

Anyone with information about the crime should call the FBI at (205) 326-6166
