Bank robbery suspects in custody

The three people who were arrested following a bank robbery at Georgia Bank and Trust on Walton Way Friday morning have been identified.

Bernard Croker, 41, believed to be from Charleston, S.C., James Damon Lamar White, 33, of Atlanta, and Justin Demond Stallworth, 23, of Augusta, were all taken to Richmond County Jail shortly after the incident, police said.

Lt. Blaise Dresser said Croker went into the bank at 11:49 a.m. and handed the teller a note demanding cash. He received an undisclosed amount and ran to a car which was waiting nearby with White and Stallworth inside.

Deputies were able to track them using detectors in the money and cornered the car at Merry Street at Central Avenue about 10 minutes after the robbery occurred.

Croker, White and Stallworth are all charged with felony robbery by intimidation, Dresser said.

Investigators said they are not sure if the robbery is related to the unsolved robbery at Queensborough Bank on Tobacco Road earlier this month.
