HURTSBORO, AL (WTVM) - A Hayneville, Ala. man has been arrested in connection to the Auburn Bank robbery in Hurtsboro, Ala. that occurred on April 13.

Levi Larry Maddox, 33, was arrested Tuesday, April 21 in Montgomery after police stopped him for a traffic violation. He was arrested for a warrant in Florida.

Officials tell us Maddox was also released from a federal prison the Friday before the robbery.

On Tuesday, April 14 he went on a shopping spree and spent $20,000. Russell County Sheriff's deputies were able to collect enough evidence to obtain a warrant.

A local tip lead to Maddox as a person of interest because he overheard Maddox talking about dividing the money stolen.

Maddox is currently being held in the Russell County Jail. Maddox's initial bond was $100,000 but has since been raised.

Sheriff Heath Taylor expects two to three more arrests in this investigation. 

"At this point I feel extremely good about the case as far as us being able to solve the case," said Sheriff Taylor. "The investigators have done a great job with running down every lead that comes in. We've had tips from the community and we've ran them all down." 

Officials said when Maddox was stopped in Montgomery, he was driving a different Mustang than the one the Sheriff's Department was looking for. They are still looking for the blue Mustang with the white lettering on the back.

Sheriff Taylor believes Maddox will be prosecuted in Russell County.
