PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) - A man wanted for a weekend bank robbery in Pascagoula has been arrested in Texas.  The search for Robert Antrim, 45, began shortly after the east location of Hancock Bank on Highway 90 was robbed Saturday morning.

Investigators said the robber was unarmed, and didn't wear a mask. He simply walked into the bank, produced a note demanding money from a teller, and walked out with the money.

Captain Shannon Massey said Antrim was tracked down at a Fort Worth, TX motel. Officers tried to stop him in his truck, but Antrim sped away, eventually jumping out of his truck. The officers managed to catch him a short while later.

Meanwhile, the bank robbery investigation continues in Pascagoula. If you have any information that could help investigators, call the Pascagoula Police Department at (228) 762-2211.
