Mobile, AL man arrested for Gulfport bank robbery

A Mobile, Alabama man is awaiting extradition to Gulfport right now in connection to a bank robbery. Gulfport Police Deputy Chief Chris Loposser told WLOX News tips from South Mississippians helped detectives identify and find Brent Woods.

On Tuesday afternoon, police released these surveillance pictures after they say Woods walked into the Hancock Bank on Cowan-Lorraine Road. Woods allegedly claimed to have a gun. He left with an undisclosed amount of money, then drove away.

Loposser says Woods is currently being held in the Mobile County jail. He's hoping to have Woods extradited to here today.
