DECATUR, Ala. (WAAY) - Authorities arrested two men who they believe are responsible for a bank robbery that occurred Friday evening.
John David VanStennis, 28, and Joseph Michael Borden, 52, are accused of robbing the People's Bank on Beltline Place in Decatur.
One of the suspects pulled out a gun, demanded money from the teller, and received an undisclosed amount of money. He then ran out of the bank and got into a white F-150 driven by the other suspect. They fled the scene, driving south on Sandlin Road.
Authorities issued a BOLO shortly after witnesses provided them with the trucks description.
A Hartselle police officer spotted the truck on Vaughn bridge where both suspects were taken into custody. The money and the gun from the robbery were recovered in the vehicle.
VanStennis and Borden were taken to Decatur City Hall, and were subsequently charged with Robbery in the First Degree. No bond has been set at this time.
