Police have made an arrest in the armed robbery of a Lancaster County bank.

East Hempfield Township said they charged 52-year-old Jose M. Ocasio, of Lebanon, for the robbery of the Metro Bank branch at 23 Rohrerstown Road on Friday evening.

Investigators believe Ocasio is the man who approached a teller and displayed a silver handgun while demanding all cash from her drawer.

Ocasio was being held in the Lebanon County Prison when he was identified as the suspect through the bank's video surveillance system, police said.

He was arrested Monday by police in North Lebanon Township for an armed robbery Saturday evening at the Country Cupboard restaurant, at 2631 Cumberland Street.
