2 Arrested in Merchants Drive Bank Robbery

Knoxville (WVLT) - Just one day after tracking down a Knoxville bank robber, officers were investigating another heist.

Just after 1:30 p.m. this afternoon a call came into KPD that a BB&T bank had been robbed on Merchants Drive.

A short time later, officials tracked down a black pick-up on I-40, just west of Campbell Station Drive.

There, two men were taken into custody.

Officials say the case will be handled in state court, and not federal.

No word yet on the names of those arrested.
