D’Iberville police arrest man they say tried to grab cash from bank drawer

Police say Roy Williams, 32, attempted to rob a bank Saturday afternoon in the Walmart Supercenter on Sangani Boulevard, but he didn’t get away with it.

Employees at Woodforest Bank called police after they said a man attempted to reach over the counter into a cash drawer, a news release from the D’Iberville Police Department said. The news release says the suspect was unable to grab any money and ran.

Police set up a perimeter around Walmart and were able to locate Williams after a concerned citizen contacted them, the release said.

He was arrested on a felony charge of attempted robbery and booked Saturday evening into the Harrison County jail, where Justice Court Judge Albert Fountain set his bond at $50,000.
