WRIGHT CITY, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A man suspected of robbing Jonesburg State Bank in Warrenton, Missouri is in custody and facing felony charges, police say.

Forty-three-year-old Ronald J. Wright was taken into custody last week and charged with two felony counts of first-degree robbery and armed criminal action for the incident that occurred on Sept. 8.

Police say Wright was wearing a mask when he walked up to a teller and showed a semi-automatic handgun. Police say Wright demanded money and the teller handed over an undisclosed amount of cash.

Wright allegedly fled the scene in a pewter-colored GMC Sonoma pickup truck that had a skull and crossbones sticker in the back window that was parked in an alley behind the bank.

Police say the sticker helped them to identify Wright as a suspect.
