NEWSFIRST Viewer Helps Police Identify Robbery Suspect

A 27NEWFIRST viewer led police in Floyd County to a man wanted for bank robbery.

The Citizen's National Bank in Garrett was held up last week. A viewer saw the suspect's composite sketch on our web channel and thought they recognized him.

Police have identified the man as Michael Wayne Williams. He's originally from Ohio, but had been living in Kentucky. A warrant has been issued for Williams' arrest.

Police arrested a woman today in connection with the robbery. Investigators say Christina Hall burned the clothing Williams was wearing during the robbery.
