CHARLOTTE—Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police arrested a suspect in connection with a bank robbery.
Andre Pierre is charged with common law robbery.
Police say he held up the First Citizens Bank on Mallard Creek Road Thursday morning. Officers say a tip from someone who saw a surveillance photo led them to Pierre.
Authorities tried to stop his car, but he fled a short distance down Nevin Place Road before police were able to take him into custody.
At the time of his arrest, Pierre was on federal probation for another bank robbery in Ohio.
