Fayetteville police nab suspected bank robber

Posted October 14, 2011

— Police said Friday that they had arrested a man suspected of robbing a Fayetteville bank Thursday afternoon.

A man walked into Carter Bank and Trust, at 697 Country Club Drive, shortly before 4 p.m., brandished a gun and demanded money, police said. He then fled in a black Nissan with an undisclosed amount of cash.

A short while later, police tried to stop a black Nissan near the intersection of Grove Street and Eastern Boulevard. After a short pursuit, officers were able to take the driver into custody, and they recovered money from the robbery, police said.

Terry G. Dunn, 47, of Bruce Drive in Dunn, was charged with common law robbery. He was released from the Cumberland County Detention Center after posting a $10,000 bond.

    "We really need a functioning DA." DA's don't set bail, Magistrates do.

    Guy I went to high school robbed a bank up in NJ. No gun, just a note. His bail was $250,000 and redused to $150,000 after 2 months. He is awaiting trial. AD offered him 7 years... His big haul?? $1400

    $10,000? bank robbery with a pistol?? Isnt it MANATORY 5 years JUST for the gun?

    After posting only $10k bond, he was released? He already tried to get away once, (after a short pursuit) he will try to get away again!

    Posted a 10,000 dollar bond? He had a gun, not just a note. Make ya wonder don't it. Time getting bad, some of these guys are trying to get locked up, free food, free medicare, place to sleep, may not be a bad place to be until the economy recovers in five years.
