COLUMBUS, Miss. (AP) - Authorities in Columbus say a man who robbed a bank branch Thursday was caught inside the offices of a downtown counseling service.

Investigators tell WCBI-TV (https://bit.ly/1g7Alf7 ) that the suspect, who has not been identified, was caught minutes after a nearby Renasant Bank branch was robbed.

The robbery was reported at about 2 p.m. The suspect was caught about a block from the bank, investigators say.

Police Chief Selvain McQueen says the robber handed bank employees a demand note, then fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

No injuries were reported.

McQueen says police believe they have recovered all the money.
