Investigators with the Chattanooga Police Department’s Robbery Unit have arrested Tommy Poindexter, 46, for robbing the Bank of America Tuesday at 3620 Tennessee Avenue.
Poindexter had entered the bank wearing what appeared to be a nylon stocking over his face while brandishing a firearm and demanding money. After obtaining the money, he fled the area on foot to a nearby woods.
Patrol officers and a K-9 officer quickly surrounded the area and started to search for Poindexter when one of the patrol officers saw him exit the woods and he was taken into custody.
Poindexter has been charged with aggravated robbery.
