Man surrenders to police, charged with Bethel Park robbery
A South Park man is awaiting arraignment in Night Court after being charged with robbing a bank last week in Bethel Park.
Charles W. Wright, 31, turned himself in on Monday afternoon at the Pittsburgh Municipal Courts building, Downtown, after Bethel Park police Detective Giles Wright identified him as the man responsible for the holdup at the Northwest Savings Bank.
Wright is accused of entering the bank late Friday afternoon, passing the teller a demand note and making off with an undisclosed amount of cash, Bethel Park police Detective Lance Mattes said in a statement.
Wright was identified through a combination of surveillance video, witness cooperation and help from other police agencies, Mattes said. A warrant for his arrest was issued Saturday, state court records show.
