JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Police have captured the man they believe robbed a Jackson bank Thursday afternoon.

Forty seven year-old Douglass Triplett was arrested with no incident earlier Sunday evening at his home.

Police believe Tripplett robbed the Trustmark branch at the Jackson Medical Mall. No one inside the bank was injured, but the robber got away after demanding cash from one of the tellers.

JPD spokesman Joseph Daughtry says Triplett already has a long record that includes arrests for violent crimes.
