Suspect Charged In Connection With Fifth Third Bank Robbery In Royal Oak

DEARBORN (WWJ) – Authorities confirmed that they have a suspect in custody in connection with bank robbery which took place at the Fifth Third bank in Royal Oak on Saturday afternoon.

Police said a man went into the bank on Woodward between 12 and 13 Mile Rd., demanding money and indicated that he had a gun. The man got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Roy Lee Buck Jr. was charged with one count of bank robbery, which carries a maximum penalty of life in prison. Buck is being held pending a detention hearing in United States District Court. His hearing is set for September 3.

Police had described the suspect as a medium-dark skinned black male, between 6-foot-2 and 6-foot-4, 30 to 40 years old, with a goatee and was wearing gardening gloves.
