Cleveland Bank Robber Arrested

Cleveland - The man accused of robbing two Cleveland-Area banks Friday and Saturday has been caught by Cleveland Police.

Officers say they found Ernest Dillard at 4629 Rocky River Drive in Cleveland late Saturday night when the dodge caravan authorities were searching for as the "getaway" vehicle from the robberies was spotted there.

Dillard, who is linked to the robbery at The Citizen's Bank on Puritas Friday, along with a second robbery at a Lorain Avenue Key Bank Saturday, is also being questioned for a homicide.

Dillard reportedly walked up to tellers and demanded money through a threatening note, though he never actually produced a weapon in either robbery.
