A local bank robber tries to rob North Carolina bank.

A man recently released from prison and still on probation for bank robberies in the Flomaton, East Brewton, and Florala area tried and failed at another robbery in North Carolina.

On Wednesday the Forest City Police Department said 38 year-old Jerry Hover Tinsley was arrested for the attempted robbery of Fifth Third Bank in Forest City.

The Rutherford County Sheriff's Office discovered Tinsley hiding in a wooded area close to his home a few hours after the attempted robbery.

Surveillance footage shows that much like his Alabama robberies, Tinsley was depicted handing the teller a note saying "this is a robbery, place all $100s, $50s, $20s on the counter no alarm no die packs no tracers," according to federal court document.

There was no weapon shown during this robbery.
