FBI arrests one from Douglas bank robbery

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.

"Federal agents picked up Tony Webb Junior in Orlando, Florida at approximately 12:30 today," said Douglas Police Commander Jerome Perkins. "He is charged with armed bank robbery. We have another suspect that is still at large."

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

His nickname is 'tater.'

He has ties to Douglas, Orlando, and Fort Myers, Florida.
