GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. -

Artavious Quanta Barber and Joseph Ian Cox were arrested in connection to a bank robbery at the Wells Fargo on Grove Road in Greenville County Wednesday.

The sheriff’s office says the report came in just before 5 p.m. Deputies tell 7 On Your Side they received a tip that there may have been a bank robbery in the area.

One of the suspects, who is accused of getting away with cash, was later caught by a deputy who was in the area. As a deputy pulled up to the Wells Fargo they witnessed a man running away and chased him for a short distance around the side of the bank.

The other man, who was waiting outside, was also arrested, according to officials. Deputies told 7 On Your Side he may have been in a vehicle nearby.

Deputies said the tip, which was later confirmed by a bank alarm, isn't the first time a piece of outside information has helped solve a crime.

This year alone, tips have helped close two Greenville County cold cases.
