DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) -

A suspect in a November bank robbery in Douglas was captured by federal agents in Orlando, Florida Friday.   

Investigators say 21- year old Tony Tyrone Webb is one of two men seen in wigs in the bank surveillance video.

They robbed Southeastern Bank on Peterson Avenue November 29th. 

Police say they got a lot of tips that helped them identify Webb. But, the case is not over.

That second suspect is 21-year old Olajawonne Webb. Police say he could be armed and dangerous. 

His nickname is 'tater.'
