GALLOWAY, Ohio (CBS/AP) The FBI says a man arrested in a central Ohio bank robbery looked familiar to bank employees.

Turns out, he had an account there and was one of their customers.

FBI agent Harry Trombitas said 43-year-old Alan Garrett turned himself in Friday, two days after the holdup in suburban Galloway, west of Columbus.

Authorities said a man wearing sunglasses and a baseball cap handed the teller a note demanding money and he got away with some cash.

The FBI says bank workers got the license plate number of the suspect's car, and the number was traced to Garrett.

Garrett was jailed on one count of aggravated robbery and a $50,085 bond.
