ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A south Georgia minister remains in jail, nearly a month after he robbed a Leesburg bank.
Bond still has not been set for 51-year-old James Creason seen here the afternoon he robbed the Heritage Bank on Robert B. Lee Drive. A judge denied Creason bond and his court appointed attorney has yet to ask for another hearing on the issue.
Jail administrators say, Creason has had a lot of friends in the jail to visit him. Creason actually confessed to officers and blamed the crime on hard economic times.
The case has yet to be brought before a grand jury. Lee County's next grand jury meets in late October.
