Suspect arrested in Tuesday’s SunTrust robbery

From staff reportsApril 16, 2013 

— A suspect has been arrested in Tuesday morning’s robbery of the SunTrust bank branch at 7320 Creedmoor Road.

A man entered the bank shortly before 10 a.m. and passed a note to a teller that said he was armed robber. After the teller complied with the note’s demands, the suspect walked away from the bank, according to police spokesman Jim Sughrue.

Raleigh Police Department’s Fugitive Unit later arrested Carlton Theodore Landis, 34, at a Burlington motel.

The robbery was the second holdup of a SunTrust branch in Raleigh within two days. On Monday, a lone gunman held up a SunTrust at 4208 Pleasant Valley Road and fled with an undetermined amount of cash. The two branches are about 3.5 miles apart.

Landis was being booked Tuesday evening into the Wake County Jail. He has not been charged in the previous bank hold-up.
