CREVE COEUR, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Creve Coeur Police have made an arrest in connection to a robbery at a Great Southern Bank on May 12. 

The Creve Coeur Police Department Investigations Unit identified the suspect, identified as Lawrin Maxwell, 27, on June 22, and a search warrant was executed at a home in the 1300 block of Broadlawns Lane in St. Louis County.

Maxwell was located and taken into custody at the Creve Coeur Police department for questioning.  During the interview, the subject made admissions regarding his involvement in two recent bank robberies in the St. Louis County area, including the one in Creve Coeur.

Maxwell was charged separately for the two robberies.  He was charged with one count of robbery in the first degree and one count of felony stealing.  In total, he's being held on $90,000 bond for the two charges.

Police say the Creve Coeur robbery occurred at the branch on 12500 Olive Blvd, when a man wearing a black Mizzou hoodie, orange sock hat, work gloves, blue and white Adidas shoes, and a paper dust mask over his face entered the bank. He then approached the teller and demanded money while implying that he had a weapon, although he did not display one.

The suspect then left the bank on foot with an undisclosed amount of money, heading in the direction of eastbound I-270. He was also carrying a flowered pillow case at the time of the robbery. Nobody at the bank was injured.
