Police say 51-year-old Vance Watts walked into the First National Bank at DeRenne and Abercorn just after 9am this morning and started a scuffle with the bank's security guard. They say Watts was trying to take the guard's weapon, when a resource officer with the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System's Campus Police happened to come into the bank.
Both guards were able to restrain Watts until police arrived. A holdup note and knife were found in Watts' pocket. He has been turned over to the FBI and charged with attempted bank robbery.
