— Clayton police arrested a man Wednesday who was wanted in connection with an attempted robbery at a First Citizens Bank branch.

Police issued an arrest warrant Tuesday evening charging Frisco Dillon Brown, 24, with attempted robbery in the crime.

Investigators say they believe Brown walked into the bank, at 10702 U.S. Highway 70 W. Business, around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday and handed a teller a threatening note demanding money.

He left on foot without any money, police said, and was last seen headed west through a neighborhood.

Police said that Brown was also charged with felony possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He was in the Johnston County jail Wednesday afternoon under a $61,500 secured bond.
