Cookeville Robbery Suspect Linked to Indiana Crime

A Cookeville man, arrested this week, on two counts of robbery for holding up the Community Bank and a US Bank branch is also being investigated for a bank robbery in Indiana just a few days before. Lafayette police said William Ray Hagood, who is currently jailed on the charges locally is now also suspected of robbing a bank in Lafayette. Hagood is suspected of holding up the Bank of Indiana branch on June 1, 2009. Lafayette police Sergeant Scott McCoy said Hagood was identified as a suspect by a tip from the public. During the Lafayette robbery, the suspect handed a teller a note indicating it was a robbery, police said. No weapon was displayed. The suspect fled of foot, getting away with an undisclosed amount of cash.
