Authorities in Morgan County say a suspect is in custody in connection to an armed bank robbery.

The Sheriff’s Office reports that around 11:00 a.m. Friday the Main Street branch of the Citizen’s National Bank in McConnelsville was robbed.

Authorities say the robber entered the bank and showed a weapon. He then demanded money and access to the vault.

The suspect left the bank and was apprehended by a citizen after a brief foot chase.

Deputies then took the suspect into custody.

The robbery remains under investigation and detectives are checking to see if the suspect may have been involved in another bank robbery earlier this year in Stockport.
