AMARILLO -- This morning Amarillo Police detained a suspect in the Wells Fargo bank robberies after an officer spotted the vehicle in the Burger King drive-up lane on Georgia.

Officers made contact with 28-year-old Jon-Michael Murray.  The man appeared to be the suspect in the two recent bank robberies.  

Officers took the man to the Amarillo Police Department for additional investigation.
