VICKSBURG, Miss. Sept 28 2010 – Vicksburg police say a suspect in a bank robbery was spotted at three casinos spending cash marked with red security dye.
Police Chief Walter Armstrong tells the Vicksburg Post that 25-year-old Christopher Marcel Johnson was charged Monday with bank robbery. He was being held in the Warren County jail after a city court appearance where bond was denied.
Armstrong says a Trustmark Bank branch was held up Friday.
He says Johnson was arrested Saturday after going to the casinos.
Police say casino surveillance videos showed Johnson driving a vehicle that matched the description provided after the robbery.
Armstrong says about $800 of the money taken from the bank was recovered.
Municipal court officials said Monday that Johnson did not have an attorney.
