On 10-22-2009, at approximately 0935 hours, officers responded to a robbery at One Banc located at 4520 W. Markham.  Upon arrival, officers learned that a white male had entered the bank and presented a note demanding money from the business.  The note stated that the suspect had a gun.  The teller complied with the note and gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of cash.  The teller advised that the suspect then left the business, walking north on Beechwood.  Surveillance video was recovered from the bank that showed the suspect was wearing a camouflage hat and dark leather jacket.
 
Officers in the area followed evidence that led them to 3802 Kavanaugh, apartment #330.  Officers made contact with James Comras.  Comras and was taken into custody and transported to the Downtown Detective Division.  Detectives executed a Search and Seizure Warrant for the residence of 3802 Kavanaugh #330.  They located the hat and jacket worn by the suspect as well as a large amount of cash inside the residence.
 
Because Comras matched the physical description of a recent bank robbery at Metropolitan Bank on Kavanaugh, he was questioned about the robbery as well.  Comras robbed the Metropolitan Bank at 2800 Kavanaugh on 8-18-09.  He presented the teller in that robbery a similar note stating that he was armed. He was wearing a cowboy hat when he committed the robbery. James Comras was charged with (2) counts of Aggravated Robbery and (2) counts of Theft of Property.  He was transported to Pulaski County Regional Jail Southside
