CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Clarksville police have identified and arrested a bank robbery suspect who took money from a Regions Bank Monday morning.

An older male, roughly 5' 3" with grey hair, went into the bank in the 2100 block of Wilma Rudolph Boulevard around 11 a.m. wearing a puffy jacket and disposable mask and handed a note to the teller demanding money, says the Clarksville Police Department. No weapon was seen by any witnesses to the crime.

William Marlow, 55, of Clarksville was arrested Tuesday and charged with robbery. His bond is set at $75,000. Marlow is currently on parole for bank robbery in another jurisdiction, says Clarksville Police.

Marlow was seen in the Lowe's parking lot near the bank and left the area in a red 4-door sedan. Photographs of the red car and the suspect from bank security cameras helped officers locate Marlow and bring him into custody.

“I would like to thank everyone involved who assisted in bringing this case to closure. It was the collective effort of the dispatchers, first responding officers, detectives, and the intelligence unit that resulted in this criminal being located quickly and taken into custody without incident," stated Clarksville Police Chief David Crockarell.
