The FBI has announced the arrest of a Savannah man in connection to several bank robberies in and around Savannah.

Tuesday, 26-year-old Charles Johnson, aka "Chuckie", was arrested during the evening hours without incident by FBI Agents with the invaluable assistance of the Savannah Chatham Metropolitan Police Department (SCMPD) SWAT team.

Additional assistance and many hours of hard investigative work was provided by SCMPD Central Precinct's Tactical Investigations Unit in locating Johnson.

On August 15th, a federal arrest warrant was obtained via federal criminal complaint filed at Savannah, Georgia charging Johnson with violation of Title 18 USC 922 (g) (1), possession of a firearm by a felon.

Johnson was also being sought for questioning in connection with the below seven Savannah area armed bank robberies:

Savannah Bank, on 100 Chatham Parkway, in Savannah, on July 11th
