— Creedmoor police arrested a man Wednesday, who they say robbed the same bank on two separate occasions in November, and a woman who they believe drove his getaway car.

Bobby Leon Harris, 29, of 2122 Westbourne Drive in Creedmoor, was charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, larceny from a person and two counts of possession of stolen goods.

Crystal Marie Patterson, 28, of 1590 Goss Road in Creedmoor, was charged with accessory after the fact.

Police say Harris passed a note to the teller at the RBC Centura Bank, 608 Main St., on Nov. 18 and escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash. On Nov. 24, police say, the pair robbed again.

Both were in the Granville County jail Wednesday. Harris' bond was set at $75,000 and Patterson's was set at $15,000.
