NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) -- Two weeks after the Wells Fargo bank in Green Hills was robbed, police arrested a man previously convicted of the same crime.

Officials told News4 that the robbery at Wells Fargo next to the Green Hills Mall was reported just before 4:00 p.m. on Dec. 7. 

According to police, the suspect demanded the money from a clerk and left the bank on foot.

Police and members of the FBI's Violent Crimes task force located the suspect, 26-year-old Antonio Peebles, at a residence on Maplewood Trace on Saturday. 

Peebles was previously convicted of aggravated robbery in 2011. Police said he may also be connected with other recent bank robberies in the area. 

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
