A Virden man has been arrested in connection with an armed robbery at a Springfield bank earlier this week.
Springfield police, the Sangamon County Sheriff’s Department and the FBI all took part in the investigation that led to the arrest of 33-year-old Shawn Graves. Graves was actually arrested at his home in Virden on Wednesday, two days after a masked man with a handgun held up the Warren-Boynton State Bank branch on Spring Mill Drive on Springfield’s far west side.
Police say that after they released a description of the suspect and his vehicle on Monday, they received Crimestoppers tips that led them to the suspect.
