MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WTVF) — A Murfreesboro man was arrested after he robbed two banks four months apart. Murfreesboro police says he robbed the banks using only a note.

Devon Gault, 24, was arrested Wednesday for two counts of aggravated robbery.

The most recent robbery took place Wednesday at the First National Bank on the 3000 block of Memorial Blvd. just after 3 p.m. Gault handed the teller a note demanding money. The note stated he had a gun, but he did not show one.

Less than an hour following the robbery, Gault was seen in a treeline near Regency Park Drive. He was taken into custody without incident.

The first of the two robberies happened Tuesday, October 8, 2019, at the First Tennessee Bank on the 100 block of West Thompson Lane. Gault went into the bank around 3 p.m. and handed the teller a similar note. He got away from that robbery with an undisclosed amount of money.

Gault is in custody at the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center on a bond of $70,000. He is scheduled for Rutherford County general sessions court February 24.
