FBI agents have arrested two men accused of three bank robberies in Del City and southeast Oklahoma City.

In all the robberies, the FBI says the suspects pointed guns at employees and customers before snatching cash and running out of the banks.

The two suspects were caught February 5 when a resident in southeast Oklahoma City called 911 to report a possible burglary in progress. Police caught the suspects at the scene, and an officer recognized Johnson as one of the primary suspects in the bank robberies.

After Oklahoma City Police Detectives and FBI agents investigated further, they arrested Johnson and Murrell. They were booked into the Oklahoma County jail and are expected to be charged with bank robbery.
