A man whom Wake Forest police charged with robbery the day after a holdup at a PNC bank branch in December 2013 was returned to the Triangle on Sunday night and slated for a first court appearance Monday.
Lanson Paul Stalf, 38, was booked into the Wake County Detention Center after being transported from Louisiana, where he’d been arrested two days after the Dec. 4, 2013, theft.
U.S. Marshals in New Orleans found Stalf at a hotel on Dec. 6, but he had illegal drugs with him and served time for drug possession in Louisiana, Wake Forest police spokesman Bill Crabtree said.
An arrest warrant that Wake Forest investigators obtained the day after the robbery accused Stalf of common law robbery and said he threatened a teller and left with $1,731 in cash.
A magistrate set Stalf’s bail at $25,000, and he was held in lieu of that.
When police swore out the arrest warrant, they listed an address for Stalf in Marseilles, Ill.
When he was booked into the detention center, he gave officers an address of 4411 Iyar Way in Wake Forest.
