Michael Wayne Johnson, 51 of Bridgeport, was arrested late Monday afternoon and charged with robbery and first-degree theft of FNB Bank in Bridgeport. Johnson allegedly approached the counter of the bank at 10:36 a.m. Monday with a handgun demanding money. He then fled in a Ford F-150 pickup truck.
The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation spent the day searching.
According to Jackson County Sheriff Chuck Phillips, Investigator Eric Woodall and an unnamed FBI agent found Johnson while walking trails in the woods on Summerhouse Mountain in Bridgeport.
Phillips said, “Johnson was taken into custody without incident. All money and the vehicle Johnson was driving were recovered.”
Phillips said that Johnson will be taken to the Jackson County Jail and will be transferred to federal custody within the next 24-48 hours.
