Police have arrested a man suspected of three bank robberies over the past two months, but say investigators are still working to track down his accomplice.

Charles Ross, 28, was arrested on September 28 near 81st and Peoria avenues for a robbery on August 21 and two on September 25.

In all three robberies, authorities say Ross presented a note to the teller and indicated he was armed. He then rode a bicycle away from the scene.

Ross was identified with help from the FBI, as was an accomplice, 43-year-old Jevon Mason, who is believed to have been Ross' getaway driver in the two September 25 robberies.

Mason is known to drive a tan 2000 Ford F-150 pickup with Arizona license plate 865-LSP.

Anyone with information on the location of Mason or the truck is asked to call the Peoria Police Department at 623-773-8311 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
