Arrest made in Leland bank robbery


LELAND, NC (WWAY) -- A Wilmington man is in jail charged with robbing a Leland bank last week. Leland Police say this morning they helped the Wilmington Police Department SWAT Team serve a warrant on Sherwin Christopher Archie, 58, of Zinnia Ct. in Wilmington.

Investigators say Archie robbed the Cape Fear Credit Union in Cross Creek Commons of US 17 Friday morning. They say they identified Archie as the suspect within hours of the robbery and got a warrant for his arrest Monday.

Let me get this straight. "They say they identified Archie as the suspect within hours of the robbery" but didn't get the warrant until Monday? What? They let this guy roam around all weekend with normal people while they went home and did nothing? People who are anything know that the magistrates work twenty four seven. Why did they wait? Why did they expose the public to danger? When they find probable cause are they not to make an arrest? What??????????????????????????????????????????????????

P.S. I'm just saying! Really??????????????????????????
Leland Justice or know how. Protect and serve? NOT!!!!

Out on the streets

What's the difference? This rat will be out on the streets in a few days doing this again and again and again anyway...

The longer he kept the money

The longer he kept the money (over the weekend)...the more interest it drew. When they arrested him...he had to give back more then he stole. It made good business sense.....


After the SWAT Team arrested this monster, they should have turned around and cuffed Tim Jayne and the other snakes in Leland. Now that this guy is caught, I do hope the effort will be put back in to exposing the Leland Police Department and the Town Council for what they are.
