A Lakewood man has been arrested in connection with a bank robbery in Sheffield Lake.

North Olmsted police arrested Andrew Perry, 21, of Lakewood, without incident at 3:30 p.m. Monday in a vehicle near Great Northern Mall, according to Sheffield Lake Police Chief Tony Campo.

Perry was charged with one count of robbery in connection with the Jan. 11 robbery of Chase Bank, 4100 Lake Road in Sheffield Lake, Campo said.

Campo said the arrest was the result of a weeklong investigation by the FBI and Sheffield Lake police.

“We received information from numerous different persons who assisted in the investigation,” Campo said.

A second suspect in the robbery has been identified as a 17-year-old Sheffield Lake resident, whose case will be handled in Lorain County Juvenile Court.

Perry is being held at Sheffield Lake City Jail, and will be arraigned today in Lorain County Municipal Court.
