Jacksonville police have arrested a second suspect in a November 2012 robbery at a local bank's drive thru.

On Monday, at around 12:43 p.m., detectives arrested Michael Deangelo Johnson, 25, of Jacksonville.

Johnson was charged with aggravated robbery that stems from the November 2012 robbery and shooting of Louise Barnett at the Austin Bank drive thru.

Johnson is the second person to be arrested in this case. Another suspect is being held at the Cherokee County jail on another robbery charge. His name has not been released.

Police Chief Reece Daniel said, "I am grateful for the long hours these detectives have worked to begin making these arrests and ultimately clear this case. Any time a person is shot during the course of a robbery, it becomes our number one priority. They are not finished yet and I fully expect them to arrest the remainder of the people involved, soon."
