FBI ties Ringgold robbery suspect to Manchester bank robbery
CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) – Officials with the Federal Bureau of Investigation say the man arrested while attempting to rob a Ringgold bank is wanted for another robbery.
FBI agents tell Channel 3 Eyewitness News the suspect in the Ringgold robbery, Timothy Kellum, is the same man suspected of robbing a bank in Manchester, Tennessee.
Kellum was arrested after allegedly calling the FSG bank in Ringgold and telling the teller he would detonate a bomb if they didn't leave money outside the door of the bank.
Authorities say the suspect in the Manchester robbery, who matches Kellum's description, used the exact same technique of calling the bank and threatening to detonate a bomb.
Tennessee authorities say charges are pending against Kellum for the Manchester robbery.
