LUMBERTON, NC (WMBF) – A man who reportedly robbed a Lumberton bank while armed with a handgun was stopped by police moments later and taken into custody, according to a news release.

At about 9:09 a.m. Thursday, the Select Bank and Trust at 4400 Fayetteville Road was robbed by a man armed with a handgun, the Lumberton Police news release states. The suspect left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money in a white Cadillac Escalade and was last seen on Cricklewood Street.

Moments later, officers with Lumberton Police stopped a vehicle on Robert Ave. at I-95 and took 46-year-old Brian Lewis Jones into custody without incident. Jones had two addresses associated with him: one in Sumter, South Carolina, and another in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

No one was injured at the bank or during the traffic stop, officials stated.

The investigation continues, and charges will be listed at a later time, the release states.
