RALEIGH — Communication between Raleigh and Knightdale police led to the arrest of a 62-year-old man Tuesday shortly after, Raleigh police charged, he robbed a State Employees Credit Union branch at 1595 Corporation Parkway.
The man, who police say is Jimmy Seth Perry of 200 Stone Path Circle in Fuquay-Varina, handed a teller a note, an arrest warrant says, “putting her in fear of bodily harm.”
The thief left the bank with $6,815, police said.
Raleigh police were told that the robber left the bank in a taxi that headed east on New Bern Avenue.
Raleigh alerted Knightdale officers, and they found the cab in a restaurant parking lot on U.S. 64 Business and held its passenger, Perry, until Raleigh police arrived.
Perry’s bail was set at $50,300 on charges of robbery and failing to appear court on a previous misdemeanor charge.
He was held pending a court appearance Wednesday.
