A suspected serial bank robber now faces several charges.
Monday, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police announced the arrest of Anthony Watson, 53. Officers picked him up at about 9 a.m. at the InTown Suites on North Tryon Street.
He was first charged with Friday's armed robbery of the BB&T on Sardis Road North. CMPD said the investigation was continuing, to determine if that robbery was linked to three unarmed robberies. The SunTrust on Galleria Boulevard, off Sardis Road, was robbed twice, first on June 11, then again on July 20. Then on July 30, the BB&T on West Arbors Drive, in northeast Charlotte, was robbed.
Then, Monday night, officers announced additional charges. Watson is now charged with four counts of felony robbery, four counts of Conspiracy to Commit Armed Robbery, and one count of Possession of Firearm by a Felon.
CMPD also said investigators found the weapon used in Friday's robbery in Watson's possession.
Watson is being held in the Mecklenburg County Jail.
Friday evening, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Crime Stoppers announced a $1,000 reward for information on the identity and or whereabouts of the suspect, and the FBI announced an additional $5,000 reward.
Detectives said Monday that information from Crime Stoppers over the weekend helped the investigation, and assisted officers in making an arrest.
