      Man arrested for Cheraw bank robbery

      Bank robbery suspect

      Fayetteville police arrested Frank Lee Mikesha in connection with a bank robbery in Cheraw, according to Cheraw Police Chief Jay Brooks.

      Mikesha was arrested Tuesday and charged with Strong Armed Robbery of a Bank.

      Brooks says he robbed First Citizens on Market Street in Cheraw last Thursday.

      Police initially thought a man who held up two banks in Florence and Darlington was involved in the Cheraw robbery, but determined that wasn't the case after further investigation.

      Mikesha is being held in Fayetteville for the time being.

      It is not known when he will be brought back to face charges in Cheraw later in the week.
