Rogersville Police Identify Suspect In String Of Recent Bank Robberies

ROGERSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Rogersville Police have identified the man accused of robbing banks in several cities.  The suspect is Cedrick Lamond Hicks of Madison County.

Rogersville Police Chief Terry Holden said Hicks is the man accused of robbing Regions Bank on Lee Street on November 27.

Chief Holden told WHNT News 19 they have a warrant issued for Hicks’ arrest for first-degree robbery.

“We want to find him before he gets another bank,” Holden said. “So far, no one’s been injured in any of these robberies, but something could go bad, and someone could get hurt.”

Chief Holden said his department is working with the FBI and several other local police departments to find Hicks.  He said a sheriff’s office in Arkansas contacted him, believing Hicks may have also robbed a bank west of Memphis.

Holden said police believe Hicks is driving a dark blue 2004 four-door Kia with a Madison County license plate.  He said agencies are strongly looking for Hicks in southern Tennessee, north Alabama and near Tunica, Mississippi.

The same suspect is believed to be involved in bank robberies in Priceville, Guntersville, and Albertville as well as over the state line in Pulaski, Tennessee.

The person apparently tried to rob Traditions Bank in Cullman on November 26.  However, he was scared off when employees immediately went on alert when he walked in the bank.

If you have any information about Cedrick Hicks, please call the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI or Rogersville Police at (256) 247-5446, Ext. 202.
