Plunkett, 39, of Dallas, Texas, is believed to be the man who robbed the Chase Bank in the 1700 block of Buford Highway last Wednesday, according to Forsyth County Sheriff's Deputy Doug Rainwater. Investigators used fingerprints left at the scene to track down the suspect.

Plunkett has been charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault; more charges are pending. Rainwater said the suspect is also wanted in Texas for a probation violation.

Plunkett is being held in the Forsyth County Detention Center. Rainwater said police are looking into the possibility that he is behind more robberies in Georgia.
