LIBERTY CO., GA (WTOC) -

Hinesville Police Detective Nollie Bentley has confirmed that William Bass, a bank robber wanted in Central Florida, was captured in Florida early Wednesday morning.

Bass was believed to be in the Hinesville/Liberty County area.

Hinesville Chief of Detectives Major Thomas Cribbs believes media reports of Bass being in the area scared him causing him to flee.

Bass was out on bond for two bank robberies and a suspect in a third Florida robbery. Cribbs was unable to provide details on Bass's arrest.

Bass has been charged with two separate bank robberies in Orange County and was able to post bond.
