Lexington County, SC (WLTX) - A man in connection to a bank robbery in West Columbia has been arrested and charged.

Leland L. Beatty, 33, is charged with entering a bank with intent to steal.

A man fled the First Citizens Bank on the 3900 block of Platt Springs Road Friday after demanding money from employees using a note, according to the Lexington County Sheriff's Office.
