Dallas bank robbery suspect arrested after running out of gas in GA

Posted: Updated:

A suspect whom Dallas police say is connected to four robberies was arrested Wednesday morning in Cumming, Ga., according to police.

Stephen C. Plunkett, 39, was found on the side of a road there after his truck ran out of gas. An officer found him and recognized him as wanted.

Plunkett was wanted on a charge in Georgia, and Dallas police and the FBI have also charged him with one bank robbery charge in connection to a March 28 robbery at a Wells Fargo in the 2600 block of Cedar Springs Drive.

During that robbery, police say Plunkett showed a hoax bomb device with a note at a drive through and fled with cash.

Officials also believe Plunkett is behind three more bank robberies.

When Georgia police arrested Plunkett, they found him to be in possession of a hoax bomb device.
