Police arrested a man Tuesday who they think tried to rob a bank by falsely claiming he had a bomb.
Randy Scott Hawley, 41, was charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and resisting, delaying and obstructing a law enforcement officer, according to a police news release.
A man walked into the First Citizens Bank in Raleigh's Five Points neighborhood and passed a note to a teller indicating he had a bomb. The man fled.
Hawley was spotted on Georgetown Road, and police officers chased him on foot. He stopped on railroad tracks near the intersection of Georgetown and Wake Forest roads and told police he had a bomb before they arrested him, the news release states.
No bomb was found.
