All four unidentified suspects wanted for a Cedar Bluff bank robbery are in custody, according to DeKalb Sheriff Jimmy Harris. 

Harris said a fourth suspect was caught about 5 p.m. hiding in a garbage can behind a Fort Payne resident’s home near the top of Beason Gap Road on Lookout Mountain.

Harris said the suspect apparently called an accomplice to pick him up after FBI agents, DeKalb and Cherokee counties authorities searched for him most of Tuesday afternoon. After the vehicle was stopped near the area where he was found, the fourth suspect jumped out and fled.

The three other suspects were caught earlier Tuesday afternoon.

Paul E. Daymond, public affairs specialist with the FBI, said the four suspects, all black males, allegedly robbed Union State Bank at 3460 Old Highway 9 in Cedar Bluff around 11:30 a.m.

He said the four, all armed, took an undisclosed amount of money from the bank then fled in a getaway car. Cherokee County deputies pursued the car, which wrecked at the intersection of Highway 35 and Highway 75 in DeKalb County.

Two suspects were apparently taken into custody almost immediately after the wreck happened while two more fled into some nearby woods. A third suspect was taken into custody shortly thereafter.

Daymond said evidence was being collected "from the bank to the wreck scene" and additional details would be released later.
