Raymond Alan Griffin had been off parole for a bank robbery for 11 days when he was arrested Tuesday, 20 minutes after a robbery at a Wells Fargo branch on West Millbrook Road.
Police picked up Griffin, 35, on Pleasant Pines Drive, about 500 feet from the bank at 3500 W. Millbrook Road, according to records.
Griffin was charged with common law robbery, which means he did not show a weapon or say he had one.
Police said in an arrest warrant that $2,118 was taken.
Griffin, who told booking officers that he has no permanent address, was released from parole Aug. 18, state records show.
He had been convicted last Nov. 26 of an unarmed robbery of a BB&T branch that happened on Dec. 23, 2014.
Records show that Griffin spent about a month in jail before being released on parole.
A magistrate set Griffin’s bail at $500,000 after police arrested him Tuesday, and he was held at the Wake County Detention Center.
