FAYETTEVILLE, NC — Fayetteville police have arrested a man they say robbed a bank Tuesday evening.
The North Carolina State Highway Patrol arrested Dennis Wayne Price Jr. on a traffic stop in Robeson County.
Fayetteville Police said around 12:30 p.m., Price entered the PNC Bank at 454 Ramsey St. He went to the window, gave a handwritten note to the teller asking for money, police said.
Police said the teller initially refused Price’s request. He then asked for the money, and the teller put an undisclosed amount of cash into an envelope, police said.
No one was injured during the bank robbery, according to police.
Price left the bank in a blue-gray 2012 Toyota Camry with North Carolina license plate CCD-2335, police said. Authorities believe Price was heading north on Ramsey Street.
Price stole the Camry from a woman who lived with him, Fayetteville police said. According to the police, he took the Camry without her permission and she filed the report.
Before the bank robbery Tuesday afternoon, Fayetteville police said Price had attempted to rob the Lumbee Guarantee at 301 North Walnut St. at the Fairmont by passing a note through the drive-thru lane. The teller refused Price’s request and he left the scene, Fayetteville police said.
Detectives with the Fayetteville Police Department’s Robbery Unit are continuing to investigate the case.
