RALEIGH, N.C. — Authorities in North Carolina said a man arrested following a bank robbery in the Raleigh area is likely the same person who robbed a bank in two weeks ago in Beckley, West Virginia.
Jacob Johnson, 29, of Lexington, Kentucky, was taken into custody on Aug. 13. Police determined Johnson appeared to be the same person seen on surveillance video during an Aug. 10 robbery at the Chase Bank location on Robert C. Byrd Drive.
During the Beckley incident, the suspect reportedly indicated he was armed though no weapon was visible.
Raleigh Police said Johnson will be extradited to West Virginia.
