A man suspected of robbing banks in Missouri and Tennessee was arrested Monday after the Shelby County Sheriff's Office says he led deputies on a high speed chase in a stolen car.
Bobby Yates, who goes by "Trey," was wanted on several outstanding warrants for robbing the Patriot Bank last week in Barretville, Tennessee in Shelby County.
According to the affidavit, the Memphis Police Department were notified about a carjacking from the 1100 block of Jackson Avenue and began electronically tracking the car Monday. Memphis police told Shelby County deputies the stolen car, a red 2006 Toyota Solara, would be traveling into their jurisdiction.
A BOLO was issued and a deputy saw the car traveling quickly on Highway 70 near Green Lee Street in Arlington. The deputy tried to stop the car, but the driver, identified as Bobby Yates, did not stop.
