Murfreesboro Police have released the name of the suspect involved in the Pinnacle Bank robbery that occurred this past Thursday. William Shane West allegedly entered the South Church Street bank and inquired about opening an account. As a teller was counting money the suspect reportedly reached over the counter and grabbed a handful of currency and then fled the area on foot.
Police later located West and transported him to the police headquarters for an interview. A police arrest report shows that during that interview, West admitted to the Pinnacle Bank robbery and a second robbery at the Dodge’s Store on Broad Street.
The 24-year old suspect was charged with robbery and will appear in court in the near future.
