A suspect wanted in connection with a bank robbery in Clarksville was taken into custody after an hours-long standoff at an area motel. 

Friday morning, officials confirmed the suspect, identified as 52-year-old Mike Rollins, was barricaded inside a room on the second floor of Motel 6 on Wilma Rudolph Boulevard. They were called to the scene around 2:20 a.m. Rooms in that area were evacuated when authorities learned Rollins was possibly armed.

Rollins was peacefully taken into custody around 7:30 a.m.

He has been charged with robbery, violation of parole, and forgery. There could be more charges pending. 

The robbery happened just before 2:15 p.m. Thursday at the Bank of America on Madison Street.

Police said the male suspect gave the clerk a note that demanded money. She complied, and he fled from the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash. Through an investigation, officials said they learned Rollins did display a gun after he handed the clerk the note.

No injuries were reported during the incident.

Authorities said Rollins had an extensive criminal history. He was out on bond for drug-related charges.

Following the crimes on Thursday and Friday, he was being held without bond for the violation of probation charge. He has a $112,000 bond for the other charges.
