He was out of jail on bond in one bank robbery case. He just got charged in two others.
An Alabama man who was out of jail on bond in a bank robbery case was arrested Thursday afternoon and charged in the armed robbery of the Navigator Credit Union on Highway 614.
Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell said in a press release that Jeremy Branch, 40, of Chickasaw, Alabama, allegedly held up the same bank in March.
In the March case, no one could identify the suspect because he was wearing a hat, hoodie and a face covering. Ezell said when the bank was robbed on Thursday, the suspect was wearing a face covering and long sleeves.
Neighboring business owners recognized the white pickup they said was used in the March robbery and called 911.
When deputies arrived, they searched Branch and found a note in his pocket implying he had a weapon to rob the bank. Ezell said Branch also had a note in the March holdup and is now charged with armed robbery in that case.
Before the holdups at Navigator, Branch was out of jail for the January 2021 on bond, charged with the armed robbery at Singing River Federal Credit Union on Highway 63 in Moss Point. The suspect used a threatening note in that robbery, too.
Branch is being held at the Jackson County jail. He has an initial court hearing Friday afternoon.
