    I heard they caught the suspect on Saturday. I'm not sure exactly who it is, but I know the suspect stayed two blocks away from the BB&T. (Word of mouth)

    I haven't seen anything, on whether, they caught the guy, or not. Any updates from anyone? Haven't seen anything on WRAL News either.

    What a shame. Broadway is such a nice little town. We drive there for the super nice people who man the Post Office. Real down home.

    I meant there is a police station directly across from the bank in the Town Hall.

    There is a bank directly across the street in the Town Hall. Unfortunatly, the guy has not been found yet..to be a small town, hopefully someone will find him asap! It was a big day in the small town of Broadway for us, for sure!

    There is town hall/police station...it's catty cornered- but still near by

    I wonder why someone local would rob a bank across the street from the police station. The local paper said that he was standing in line with his toboggan, correctly & then pulled it down over his face as he walked up to the tailor.
