Authorities search for serial NC bank robber

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Local and federal law enforcement agencies are seeking help in their search for a man suspected in five bank robberies across North Carolina.

The Charlotte division of the FBI, the Asheville Police Department and the Buncombe County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement Monday that they are looking for 60-year-old Clyde Allen Nixon.

Authorities said they believe Nixon is responsible for four robberies in Asheville, Candler and Buncombe County and another in Raleigh. The statement said Nixon was believed to have a female companion waiting outside the bank in the recent robbery in Raleigh.

Nixon has friends and family throughout North Carolina and South Carolina, and authorities add that he’s been seen in Buncombe, Carteret, Cleveland, Craven, Gaston, and Mecklenburg counties. They say he should be considered armed and dangerous.
