The man linked to both Wells Fargo bank robberies in the past week has been arrested.
On Sept. 3, at about 8:40 a.m., APD officers were on a call south of I-40 and S. Georgia when they saw a silver van that matched the description of the van used in the Aug. 27 robbery of the Wells Fargo at 1838 S. Georgia.
It was in the drive-up lane at the Burger King Restaurant.
Officers made contact with the driver and only occupant, another man.
The man appeared to be the suspect in the two recent bank robberies.
Officers took the man to the APD for additional investigation. The officers also secured a search warrant for and searched the 2007 Dodge van.
Robbery Squad investigators developed physical evidence that linked the man to both the Aug. 27 and Sept. 2 Wells Fargo robberies.
Investigators also searched the apartment where the suspect had been living in North Amarillo.
They recovered money possibly taken in the robberies.
The cases were reviewed by the 47th District Attorney's Office. They accepted two charges of robbery against Jon-Michael Murray, 28, and he was booked into Potter County Jail.
