UPDATE:

According to the Cabell County Courthouse, Jonathan Tyler Deaton pled guilty to 2nd degree robbery Thursday morning.

His sentencing will be on Friday, December 13, 2013, at 9 a.m. in front of a judge.

 

UPDATE:

The Cabell County Sheriff's Department along with the FBI and the St. Albans Police Department have made an arrest in the Fifth Third Bank robbery in Barboursville.

Jonathan Tyler Deaton, 22,  of Barboursville was arrested and charged with bank robbery.

He was arraigned in Kanawha County Magistrate court on the charge. Bond was set at $75,000 cash only. Deaton was then sent back to Cabell County to be re-arraigned on the he charges. From there, he was being taken to the Western Regional Jail. 

According to the arrest warrant, Deaton approached a teller at the Fifth Third Bank and demanded $20,000. When the teller told Deaton that she didn't have $20,000, he stated "You do have the money, now give it to me now," according to the arrest warrant. Then Deaton threatened to cross the counter and get the money himself. A fellow teller passed over several thousand dollars in currency and it was handed to the suspect. Deaton then fled the bank.

Authorities began their search and brought in K-9 units to track the suspect. Images from surveillance video were distributed to the media. Cabell County 911 received a call from a woman who said she recognized the person in the images because she used to work with him.

That information led authorities to check Tyler Deaton's Facebook account. His profile contained several public photos, according to the arrest warrant. Investigators were able to compare the images on Facebook with the surveillance video and match them to the suspect.
