Just after 11:30 a.m., the robbery suspect was located by the FBI at a residence in the 100 block of Mimosa Court in Mulga and taken into custody for questioning. He will be taken to the Jefferson County Jail to await formal charges. His name is being withheld pending those charges.

Police say the driver was located just after 2 p.m. He was hiding in the attic of a home in the 600 block of 3rd Avenue in Mulga. The money taken during the robbery was recovered as well at that location.

That suspect is being questioned by detectives and will be taken to the Jefferson County Jail to await formal charges. His name is being withheld pending those charges.

The suspects already attempted to rob at BB&T Bank on Meadow Brook Lane earlier in the day. They are also suspected as the same men that robbed the same BB&T Bank on June 7.
