The Sandy Springs Police Department announced Thursday on its Facebook page it has arrested Michael Joseph Weaver, who is charged with the Wednesday robbery of the Wells Fargo Bank located at 1034 Hammond Drive.

According to the report, Weaver and a female accomplice entered the bank shortly before 5 p.m. and robbed it of an undisclosed amount of money. The two fled the bank but were spotted minutes later at the Hilton Suites on Peachtree Dunwoody Road in Sandy Springs. Weaver fled through a back door to the hotel but was chased down by an officer and surrendered without incident.

The female accomplice managed to flee the scene and remains at large. Detectives have a number of promising leads which they are following up on, according to the report.

Big Dummies! Robbing a bank in the midst of a very busy business district with the bank sitting atop a hill in plain view of everything!! I drove by there at that time and was thinking "Very bold move -- Must have driven a getaway car, and picked that location so they could jump right onto the interstate!"
