Police: Park Sterling Bank robber caught in Norwood bank robbery

Salisbury Police say a man wanted in the Nov. 20 bank robbery at Park Sterling Bank has been caught. The man was arrested in the midst of a bank robbery in Norwood on Monday.

Authorities say it wasn’t his first heist. The Concord man also robbed a bank in Belmont, they say.

Officials charged Quinton Christopher Terrell, 45, of the 100 block of White Street, with felony robbery with a dangerous weapon. He’s being held under a $50,000 secured bond. He’s currently in the Stanly County Detention Center. Terrell also is under a $50,000 secured bond in each of the other robberies.

In the Salisbury robbery, the man handed the clerk a note and a white trash bag. He told the teller to put all of the money from the drawer in the bag. He implied to the teller he had a gun. He left on foot once he received the money.

Salisbury Police believe he also tried to rob the Wells Fargo on West Innes Street and Bank of America prior to walking into Park Sterling. A man matching Terrell’s description walked into the Wells Fargo and Bank of America, but left. He was wearing a thick camouflage jacket, a military-style boonie hat with a brim and sunglasses.

Belmont authorities say the same man robbed a bank there and left the note at the scene. Belmont law enforcement was able to obtain a fingerprint from the note and then able to identify the suspect as Quinton Terrell.

Salisbury Police Capt. Shelia Lingle said in the Salisbury incident, Terrell handed the clerk a note, but he got the note back from her.

Terrell has previously been convicted of driving while impaired, driving while license revoked, operating a motor vehicle without financial responsibility, felony selling a schedule II controlled substance and felony assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.
