Police say a Mount Olive man robbed his former coworkers as they made bank deposits.

Jeremy Andrew Jefferson is charged in two incidents.

The first happened April 4. An employee of Andy's Restaurant said a man with a black cloth covering his face robbed him outside the eatery and took a bank deposit.

Then on April 26, two employees says they were robbed outside the New Century Bank on Spence Avenue around 11:20 p.m. Detectives say they were able to identify Jefferson when he pointed a gun at them.

Deputies went to Jefferson's Mount Olive home Wednesday morning and arrested him. They say evidence linking him to the robberies was found in a vehicle at the residence.

Jefferson was taken to the Wayne County Jail. Bond was set at $150,000.
