Jonesboro Bank Robber Suspect May Have Struck Again

RUSSELLVILLE, AR - Authorities in Russellville say they are looking for a suspect in a robbery this morning of a Simmons First Bank branch.

The robber was described as white, medium height, about 220 pounds and in his 50s with gray hair.  Russellville police are exploring whether the suspect is the same person who robbed banks recently in Jonesboro and West Memphis.

The robbery occured at 10:35 a.m. at a branch that's inside a Kroger store on Highway 7.  The robber didn't display a weapon but handed a teller a note saying he was armed.  The robber left with an undisclosed amount of money.

In the Jonesboro and West Memphis robberies, police have named a suspect, 53-year-old George Stephen Cuthbertson of Brinkley.  He is wanted for the June 19 robbery of a First Security Bank branch in Jonesboro and for a June 13 robbery of the Evolve Bank and Trust in West Memphis.

Police say Cuthbertson is armed and dangerous and warns that anyone seeing him should call police.

Cuthbertson may be driving a white Dodge van with Arkansas license plate number 352-KKJ.  He is also wanted for at least one robbery in Alabama.
