Bank robbery suspect nabbed at bus station

COLUMBUS, Ohio – A suspect in two bank robberies is behind bars, but Joseph Miller did not come quietly.

Miller, 27, assaulted a Columbus police officer who arrested him at the Greyhound Bus station in downtown Columbus Wednesday, Franklin County Sheriff Zach Scott said.

Miller was a suspect in a bank robbery at the US Bank branch at Westland Mall and a Huntington Bank branch in Whitehall, as well as at least two burglaries in Fairfield County and two car thefts, Scott said.

Miller is believed to be the man who robbed the US Bank on Monday afternoon and the Huntington Bank, 4550 E. Broad Street, Tuesday, Scott said.

In both cases, Miller handed tellers notes demanding money and fled on foot, Scott said.

Scott says detectives in his office received several tips that the suspect was Miller after security video of the US Bank robbery aired on television and they worked with Whitehall police to confirm Miller may also have robbed the bank there.

Miller was arrested while trying to board a bus bound for Atlanta, Scott says.

He has been charged with aggravated robbery, robbery, assault on a police officer, drug abuse and resisting arrest, Scott said.
