An alert citizen saw the man exit the bank with a partially covered face and got the attention of an Oak Grove officer and alerted him about a man exiting the bank with a mask.

The Oak Grove officer followed the white Crown Victoria to the Circle K gas station at 601 Tiny Town Road where it stopped to possibly put gas in the car.

The Oak Grove officer sat and observed the vehicle at the gas pumps until Clarksville Police Department arrived and took the man into custody without incident. The man did have a gun and there were additional items in the vehicle which were seized for investigative purposes.

The Clarksville Police Department is coordinating with the F.B.I on the investigation of this case so no additional details or suspect information will be released at this time.
