SAVANNAH, GA (April 12, 2013): The Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s Robbery Unit with the help of several federal and local law enforcement agencies made an arrest for the March 20 robbery of the Wells Fargo Bank branch located in the 3500 block of Ogeechee Road.

Marcus T. Newton, 26, was taken into custody by SCMPD early this morning. He is charged with Armed Robbery and Theft by Receiving Stolen Auto. At 5:30 a.m. warrants were simultaneously served at two of Newton’s last known addresses: one in Midway and the other in the 800 block of Elliot Ave in Savannah. As one group of law enforcement officers cleared the Midway residence, a second group of officers entered the Savannah location where they found Newton.

Newton’s arrest results from a collaboration between SCMPD’s Robbery Unit, the FBI, U.S. Marshals, SWAT, Metro’s Forensics Unit, the Savannah Area Regional Intelligence Center, Precinct 1 Detectives and Patrol, Midway Police and Liberty County Sherriff’s Office.
