67 year old charged with armed robbery of an Ellisville bank

Ellisville, MS (WDAM) - Ellisville police have detained Jimmy A Hutto in connection with a late Tuesday afternoon bank robbery.

Authorities say a Hutto entered the Bank of Jones County on Court Street in Ellisville just before 4:00 Tuesday afternoon and demanded money.  Hutto has been booked and charged with armed robbery.  Sources tell Seven on Your Side the suspect walked into the bank and said, "No one will get hurt if you give me 20,000 dollars."

Police detained the 67 year old at his home and waited until they got a search warrant to search the residence.  The alleged "get away car" was found in front of Hutto's home. No word on what, if anything, was found inside.
