Two suspects have been arrested in the Tuesday (May 15) armed robbery of the Wells Fargo Bank at 3072 Old Norcross Road in Duluth.
The arrests were announced by Atlanta Division Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent in Charge (SAC) Brian D. Lamkin and Gwinnett Police Chief Charles M. Walters in a FBI press release.
At about 11:15 a.m. Tuesday, two men entered the bank wearing masks and brandishing at least one semi-auto handgun, according to the release. After obtaining an undisclosed amount of money, they were observed departing the bank in a maroon Honda Accord and fleeing southbound on Interstate 85.
Responding units from the Gwinnett County Police Department began pursuit of the getaway vehicle, which exited I-85 at Pleasantdale Road. The getaway vehicle crashed into several vehicles at an intersection near a Quicktrip gas station, and the alleged robbers abandoned their vehicle and fled on foot.
Arrested without further incident shortly thereafter were Anwand R. Jackson, 34, of Norcross, and Herbert Hector, 36, of Atlanta, the release stated. Both individuals were being held and processed on federal charges related to armed bank robbery.
They were scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday, May 16, before a U.S. magistrate judge at the Richard B. Russell Federal Courthouse in Atlanta.
