Bank Robber Arrested

A suspect in last month’s robbery of the First Union Bank has been arrested. 42-year-old Richard Hawes, of New Castle, has been charged with robbing the bank as well as knocking over the same bank in Blacksburg twice in a single week. He was arrested Tuesday night at a Roanoke Hotel with cash and crack cocaine, and is described by police as “the primary suspect.” Reed Williams has the story in today’s Progress.
