Multi-agency investigation leads to bank robber's arrest

Posted By on Fri, Apr 29, 2016 at 10:39 AM

A cooperative investigation among multiple law enforcement agencies resulted in a man’s arrest for two bank robberies that occurred between 9 and 10 a.m., April 28.

David Stanley, 51, was arrested for allegedly robbing the BB&T bank in the 300 block of Mall Boulevard and the Georgia Heritage Federal Credit Union in the 1000 block of West Lathrop Avenue. Stanley reportedly stated he was armed during both robberies.

"Detectives credit forthcoming witnesses and community involvement, which led to the description of the suspect’s vehicle," police say. "Stanley was apprehended following a traffic stop near a gas station on Highway 80 in Pooler." 

The Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s Robbery Unit, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Chatham County Sherriff’s office, Pooler Police, and the Department of Motor Vehicles were all instrumental in the arrest.

Stanley is a convicted felon and has been incarcerated eight times since 2004 on theft and shoplifting related charges.

This investigation is ongoing. Anyone with additional information should call CrimeStoppers at (912) 234-2020 or text CRIMES (274637) using the keyword CSTOP2020. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.

    While there is plenty of worry about how violent crime will affect tourism, the real concern is how it will affect the decision of residents whether or not to stay. The idea of leaving for a more safe locale seems almost inconceivable to those of us who’ve invested many years and whole lifetimes here. But Savannah’s just like anyplace else— people and businesses can decide it’s just not worth it anymore.
