ROGERSVILLE — Warrants have been issued for a man suspected of robbing the Rogersville branch of Regions Bank on Nov. 27.
First-degree robbery warrants have been issued for Cedrick Lamond Hicks, 33, whose last known address was 3109 S. Nevel Circle, Huntsville, Rogersville Police Chief Terry Holden said.
Holden said Hicks could be driving a blue 2004 four-door Kia Optima with Madison County plates.
Police identified Hicks as a suspects a few days after the robbery, working closely with the FBI and other law enforcement agencies.
“We believe he still could be in the area, so we’re asking for the public’s help in trying to locate him,” Holden said.
Authorities believe the suspect also may be responsible for bank robberies in Priceville, Guntersville, Cullman and Albertville. Surveillance photos of the suspect at those robberies often showed him wearing a ball cap.
“There are at least six other bank robberies that he may be questioned about,” Holden said. “And we have been getting calls from agencies in Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee as well as Alabama. They would all like to talk with him in connection with bank robberies in their states.”
On Nov. 27, a man in dark clothing entered Regions Bank on Lee Street in Rogersville about 3:30 p.m. and demanded cash from a teller.
Holden said the robber told the teller he wanted to make a withdrawal and indicated he was robbing the business.
Using a Florence police dog, officers tracked the suspect’s path from the bank to a residential area about 200 yards away.
“We believe that’s where he had the car parked and he walked to and from the bank without anyone being suspicious,” Holden said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Rogersville police at 256-247-5446, ext. 212, or Crime Stoppers at 256-386-8685.
