Man arrested in connection to St. Johns County bank robbery

A local man was arrested Monday afternoon in connection to a St. Johns County bank robbery, authorities say.

Lee Ashley Alford, 51, was found inside his car in the parking lot of the bank that was robbed by deputies, says Kevin Kelshaw, St. Johns County public information officer, in a release.

Authorities responded to the Regions Bank on State Road 13 just after noon and were told by bank employees that a man went inside the bank, up to a teller and then demanded money. Employees told deputies he didn't show a weapon.

Alford reportedly got some cash and then got into his SUV where he was stopped by responding deputies.

He's currently in the St. Johns County jail on $5,000 bond for a robbery charge.
