A Moss Point man arrested Friday is accused in a robbery of a Wells Fargo bank in downtown Biloxi.
Police arrested Brian Wesley Creel, 44, of Moss Point, on a robbery charge.
Biloxi police Lt. Christopher De Back said Creel slipped a note to a teller demanding cash at the Howard Avenue branch Friday afternoon. After leaving the bank with an undisclosed amount of money, Creel was recorded on surveillance footage riding away in a blue Dodge Dakota pickup truck.
De Back said Gautier police saw a vehicle matching the description of the truck. They stopped Creel on Gautier-Vancleave Road at 4:37 p.m. and detained him for Biloxi police, who arrived and arrested him.

Creel is being held in Harrison County jail on a $250,000 bond issued by Harrison County Justice Court Judge Albert Fountain.
