OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - An Ohio man is under arrest after police say he robbed the M&M Bank in Ocean Springs Thursday morning.
Sean Bradford Mitchell, 41, of Athens, Ohio was apprehended just a few hundred yards away from the bank. Police recovered a large amount of cash, but would not say exactly how much.
Police say just after 11am, a man walked into the bank wearing a mask and carrying a gun. After getting the money, he ran out of the bank and headed north. He tried to cross Highway 90, but got caught in traffic. Police say that may be why it was so easy to catch him.
