GLOSTER, Ms. - Police say a man from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, is accused of robbing a bank about 50 miles north in Gloster, Mississippi.

Amite County Sheriff says 47-year-old Roger Dale White Jr. was caught with the cash less than three hours after the robbery Friday.

The sheriff's office says White remained jailed Sunday on an armed robbery charge. It was not clear whether he has an attorney who could comment.

Wroten said that bank employees say the robber never showed a weapon but ordered tellers to empty their registers onto the counter. No customers were inside.

The robber ran into woods. Deputies and police from three towns set up stations around what Wroten describes as a big block until the Louisiana State Penitentiary chase team brought a bloodhound.
