Warrant: Raleigh bank robbery suspect implicated self in crime
Posted June 19, 2013
Raleigh, N.C. — A man accused of robbing a PNC Bank branch in Raleigh told police he was involved in the crime, according to a search warrant released Wednesday.
Scott Randall Gray, 51, was arrested Monday afternoon in connection with the robbery at 14400 New Falls of Neuse Road.
Investigators said Gray walked into the bank, announced he had a bomb and then later fled in a bank customer's minivan.
He then abandoned the vehicle before getting into another car, which police later stopped near the intersection of Six Forks and Strickland roads – about 9 to 12 miles from the bank.
According to the warrant, Gray "made spontaneous utterances" implicating himself in the bank robbery and, once in police custody, made further statements that implicated him in the crime.
Police found no explosives inside the bank.
Gray is charged with two counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon – one of which stems from the bank robbery and the other in connection with the theft of the minivan.
He was in the Wake County jail Wednesday under a $150,000 bond.
