CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – The Charleston Police Department arrested the person responsible for a bank robbery on Wednesday, August 17.

Cory Ray Christie, 37, of Georgia is charged with entering a bank with the intent to steal. Christie was arrested on August 30th in Chatham, Georgia and is currently being held at the Chatham County Detention Center awaiting extradition.
