SAVANNAH, GA -

Three men have been charged in the robbery of the Wells Fargo Bank branch on the 3500 block of West Bay Street Friday morning.

Charged with armed robbery were Brandon Williams, 24, John D. Simmons, 20, and Jarrod M. Johnson, 27, after an investigation by Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police and FBI agents led to a house on 5th Street in Garden City where they were hiding after the robbery.

At 9:40 a.m., two of the men armed with hand guns went into the bank and robbed it of cash. They fled in different directions.

A contingent of patrol, crime suppression units, detectives and precinct commanders from West Chatham, Islands and Downtown precincts, along with canine, aviation and violent crimes detectives as well as FBI agents and Garden City officers saturated the area in search of the suspects.

On the premises of the house identified by the investigation, police found items from the robbery, including guns, masks and the cash taken.

SCMPD robbery unit detectives and FBI agents continue to investigate.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020 or text CRIMES (274637). Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
