The bank employee called authorities and the FBI was able to trace the cellphone used to call the station. Randy Washington was arrested and has been charged with bank robbery, along with another man.
The FBI is also searching for four other alleged accomplices. Washington denies the allegation. He says he called the radio station to win a prize.
