The tips further solidified the suspect that the Detectives had developed. The suspect was identified as Jesse Joe Green.

Through further investigation, Green was tracked down and located at a hotel on Westfield Court. Green was transported to Police headquarters and interviewed by Detective Nick Newman. Detective Newman determined Green was the person who committed the robbery at Regions bank and that he had left the scene in a vehicle which was parked at a business next to the bank.
