— Rocky Mount police arrested Robert Jason Jones Wednesday, just hours after they say he robbed a bank on Fairview Road.

A man passed a note to a teller just after 1:30 p.m. demanding money, then he left the bank in a silver Ford Mustang. Investigators identified Jones, 36, as their suspect and charged him with robbery with a dangerous weapon.

He was being held Thursday at the Edgecombe County Jail on $25,000 secured bond.
