A Georgia man wanted for bank robbery in Florida was arrested Thursday at the Hard Rock Casino Hotel in Biloxi.

Biloxi police Investigator Steve Schlicht said Christopher Michael Nelson, 42, was wanted for bank robbery in Tampa and three other counts of bank robbery in Pasco County Florida.

Schlicht said officers found Nelson in his hotel room at the Hard Rock after a tip led them to the wanted man. Both Florida agencies said they would seek the extradition of Nelson to serve warrants on all charges.

Schlicht said Nelson is charged with felony fugitive from justice. He is being held at the Harrison County jail without bond pending an initial appearance.

The investigation is ongoing.
