POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) -

Poplar Bluff police arrested a man in connection with a robbery on November 19.

Around 11:28 a.m., police say they were dispatched to the Poplar Bluff Federal Credit Union, located at 221 North 5th Street, in reference to a robbery complaint.

Bank employees told police that a white male entered the bank and gave one of the tellers a note. The note demanded that the teller give him cash or he would detonate a bomb.

Police say the teller pulled $1,500 from the drawer and placed it on the counter. The white male grabbed the cash and left the building.

A short time later, police say they received a call which identified the suspect in this robbery as David Joiner, 27, of the 400 block of North Main Street in Poplar Bluff; and advised that he was at his house.

Police responded to the home and Joiner was arrested without incident. At the time of his arrest, police say the $1,500 taken during the robbery was found on Joiner's person.

David Joiner was taken to the Poplar Bluff Police Department where he was booked in on a charge of first degree robbery. Joiner was later taken to the Butler County Jail.
