Bank robbery leads to two arrests
A bank robbery early yesterday morning at the Charleston Town Center mall has police investigating. Two men with guns robbed the United Bank branch just as the bank was getting ready to open. Charleston police report one of the two men banged on the glass at the bank, and when a bank employee came near, he allegedly pulled a gun and aimed it at her through the glass. She let the men into the bank. The men went through cash drawers and took off with an undisclosed amount. They were caught near Martin Luther King Center and Washington Manor. 40-year old Billy Reed of West Virginia and 20-year old Anthony Williams of Florida were arrested. Police say the men had been staying at the shelter on Leon Sullivan Way.
