Newark man charged in pair of bank robberies

A man wanted in connection with two bank robberies is under arrest.

34-year-old Kent Buckson is charged with robbing the WSFS branch at 201 Fox Hunt Drive in Bear in June.

Police say he implied he had a weapon, got cash and took off on foot.

On July 10th, Buckson is accused of walking into the PNC on Limestone Road in Wilmington, handing a teller a note demanding money and took off after getting cash.

Troopers were able to identify Buckson in a follow-up investigation.

He was taken into custody from a Newark motel Thursday.
