FAYETTEVILLE - Two men were arrested Thursday in connection with Wednesday's Arvest Bank robbery on Garland Avenue.
Marcus L. Green, 32, 1665 Boxley Ave., was arrested in connection with felony aggravated robbery and two counts of felony theft of property.
Fayetteville police believe Green was the man seen on Arvest Bank's surveillance video pulling a .22-caliber handgun on a teller and demanding money early Wednesday evening.
Green fled on foot northbound with more than $3,000 in cash across the adjacent Harps Food Store parking lot, according to a police report.
Investigators received several tips following the release of Green's picture from the bank's surveillance video. Green was pulled over on a traffic stop Thursday evening and taken into custody.
Green confessed he robbed the bank at gunpoint with a gun he borrowed from a friend, identified as Dellemond Cunningham, according to the police report.
Police arrested Cunningham, 30, 1662 Dawn Drive, during a separate traffic stop Thursday night. Cunningham was arrested in connection with aggravated robbery, theft of property, possession of a controlled substance, possession of a firearm and simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms, all felonies.
Cunningham admitted he served as the robbery getaway driver and provided the weapon used in the robbery, said Lt. Jaime Fields, head of Fayetteville police's Criminal Investigation Division.
The investigation was a joint effort between Fayetteville and Springdale police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Fields said.
Springdale police also arrested the men in connection with theft of property, stemming from a separate investigation.
Green and Cunningham remained in the Washington County Detention Center on Friday awaiting a bond hearing.
