Lexington Police arrested a man involved in the robbery of a Hamburg bank Friday morning.

Officials say Kelly Scott Wooten, 40, robbed the Fifth Third Bank in Hamburg. He alluded to the bank teller that he had a weapon, then took the money and fled in a silver Acura.

Police were able to catch up with Wooten on I-75 near Madison County. He was arrested and charged with robbery.

They add that a witness description of the car, along with bank surveillance video, were what helped them nab the robber so quickly.

Originally, it was reported that two were arrested--a woman was in the car with Wooten when the robbery happened. However, officers determined that she had nothing to do with it, and she was released without charges.
