A man suspected of robbing the Pinnacle Bank on South Cumberland Street on Jan. 5 turned himself in to Lebanon Police and the FBI late Wednesday night after authorities identified him earlier in the day.

We picked him up last (Wednesday) night at 11 in Smyrna, said Lebanon Police Chief Scott Bowen. He has been charged with bank robbery.

The suspect was identified as Clifton A. Knight, 49, of Woodbury. He was arrested on a Federal warrant for Bank Robbery and is now is Federal custody.

Knight has been convicted of a gun-related crime previously, but he did not display a weapon in the Jan. 5 robbery.

Bowen noted that investigators are looking at Knight as a suspect in another bank robbery, also at the South Cumberland Street Pinnacle location, that occurred in July. In addition, Knight is also being looked at in connection with other bank robberies that have occurred in the area.

The Wilson Post broke this story Thursday morning online and on our Facebook page.
