Saucier Man Charged In Bank Robbery

A Saucier man is in police custody, accused of robbing the Hancock Bank on Highway 53 Tuesday afternoon.

Deputies say Jason Lee Keller, 27, is charged with armed robbery.

Witness told sheriff's deputies a man carrying a gun entered the bank Tuesday afternoon and demanded money from the bank tellers. They say he then left the bank and took off running towards a wooded area. That's where police arrested Keller.

The stolen money was recovered, but investigators won't say how much cash was involved.
