Two Regions Banks robbed in two days

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Jackson police hope surveillance tape of a Wednesday bank robbery will lead to a quick arrest.

The four employees inside were left shaken up after the heist at the Regions Bank on Lakeland Drive near Ridgewood Road. It happened just before 11:30 a.m.

It's unclear if the man was armed. Employees tell police he never pulled a gun.

Crime scene investigators spent their lunch hour processing the scene and interviewing witnesses. Three customers were also inside at the time. No one was hurt.

"It was robbed by a white male wearing a light shirt, khaki pants, with a receding hairline. He left on foot in an unknown direction," says Jackson Police spokesman Joseph Daughtry.

Call Jackson Police at 601-960-1234 if you have any information.

On Tuesday, the Regions Bank at Meadowbrook and State Streets was held up.  Police arrested 32-year-old Derrick Husband of Jackson shortly afterward.
