Forsyth County sheriff’s deputies Tuesday night arrested a man they say robbed a bank from his car.
Stephen C. Plunkett, 39, was charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault, Forsyth County sheriff’s Deputy Doug Rainwater said.
Authorities say the Dallas, Texas, man drove up to the drive-in Chase Bank branch at 1710 Burford Hwy. on April 9 and threatened to use an explosive device.
He handed a note to the teller claiming to have placed the explosive device somewhere on the branch property and demanding cash, authorities said.
