Biloxi bank robber busted
Police have taken a man into custody after a bank robbery occurred in downtown Biloxi this afternoon.
Around 1 p.m., Brian Wesley Creel entered the Wells Fargo on Howard Avenue and handed a teller a note demanding money. He then fled, but was captured on surveillance leaving the bank and getting into a blue Dodge Dakota pickup.
According to Biloxi Police Department, the 44-year-old Moss Point resident was apprehended on Gautier-Vancleave Road just before 5 p.m. after his truck was identified as matching reports of the getaway vehicle. Authorities didn’t specify whether Creel was armed. No one was injured during that robbery.
Lieutenant Christopher De Back with the Biloxi Police Department said, “We were able to determine that an older white male, tall and thin, walked into the bank on the south side. He appeared to be wearing a lighter, possibly tan, zip up jacket. He also had on a black knit cap. He walked up to the teller, provided a note demanding money, she did what she’s supposed to do, handed over an undisclosed amount of money and he exited out of the south door.”
Creel is being held at Harrison County Jail on a $250,000 bond.
