The man who walked into a Jackson credit union Wednesday and allegedly robbed it, has been arraigned in court.

Omar Ismail Martin is facing bank robbery charges. Officers caught him shortly after the crime thanks to a description.

They say the 33-year-old walked into the credit union on North Street Tuesday and handed the teller a note saying he had a gun. He demanded money and when he got it, he took off.
