Law enforcement share tactics for catching bank robbers

WILX 10 Michigan

JACKSON, Mich. (WILX) - When a bank robber strikes, law enforcement said it’s ready to respond.

Jackson County was hit with back-to-back robberies on Wednesday, Sep. 20, first at a Flagstar Bank in Summit Township, then again at a 1st American Credit Union in the city of Jackson. Police said the alleged offender, a 50-year-old man, is no first timer.

“This person has been arrested and convicted in 2001, and again I believe in 2007 for bank robbery,” said Jackson County Undersheriff Christopher Simpson. “Fast forward now to 2023, and he’s doing it again.”

It was during the suspects second robbery attempt that he was taken into custody by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department. Simpson said it’s not the first string of robberies to happen in the area, but when they do, his team is responding as quickly as they can.
