MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - One man is behind bars in connection with two separate BB&T bank robberies in Midland.

Justin Slatton, 54, is on hold pending federal robbery charges in connection with the robberies that occurred on Dec. 30, located in the 1100 block of Andrews Highway and on Jan. 6 in the 4700 block of North Midland Drive.

We're told in both robberies, witnesses reported that a man walked up to the counter and demanded money. He then fled the scene on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.

Slatton was later found near a home and was arrested for two outstanding warrants, possession of a controlled substance and failure to ID.

Slatton is currently behind bars at the Midland County Jail
