Decatur First Bank’s Kroger Branch Robbed, Suspects Already in Custody

Deputy Chief Keith Lee was quick to respond to my inquiry with details and news that the perps have already been arrested.

We were notified of an armed robbery of the Decatur First Bank branch at Kroger this afternoon. Two suspects were stopped a few minutes later on Church Street.

Hats-off to DPD!!!
