An arrest has been made in what Springfield Police are calling attempted murder and attempted robbery at US Bank on Memorial Blvd back on August 2nd. Police arrested Springfield resident, 22 year old Ambers Deshawn Payne at McDonald’s on Memorial Blvd in Springfield where he was employed, police say.
Police developed Payne as a suspect after receiving a Crime Stoppers tip. According to police, Payne was taken into custody without incident Tuesday afternoon around 1:30PM.
Payne has been charged with criminal attempt to commit homicide and criminal attempt to commit aggravated robbery. He is presently being held at the Robertson County detention facility in Springfield without bond. When set, his bond could be anywhere between $30,000 to $100,000, according to a police spokesperson.
After discovering sufficient evidence to establish probable cause, Detective David Joyce of the Springfield Police department made the arrest. Police allege that Payne is the man that came up behind the pickup in the security video released by US bank.
In an interview, Detective Joyce told Smokey that he has a message to the community, “Commit these robberies we’re going to hunt you down.”
