CAHOKIA (KMOV.com) -

Authorities have charged Eric Von Stevenson Jr., 36, in connection with a bank robbery that happened in Cahokia on Sept. 23.

Cahokia police said the robbery happened at the Regions Bank on 900 Upper Cahokia Road. Just before noon, authorities said Stevenson walked into the bank, approached a teller's window, gave the teller several envelopes and told the teller to fill them.

After the teller put an undisclosed amount of cash in the envelopes, police say Stevenson told the teller not to say anything or look around, then calmly walked out of the bank. 

Cahokia police took Stevenson into custody on Thursday. He is being held at the St. Clair County Jail on a $75,000 bond.
