FBI agents and Midwest City Police arrested a man in connection with a bank robbery.

Christopher Fulton, 30, was arrested Friday on suspicion of robbing IBC Bank, 414 N Air Depot, on Feb. 27.

Police said a man dressed in black walked into the bank and handed a teller a check with writing demanding money and threatening to kill. Fearing an alarm had been activated, the man left the bank with no money and drove away in a black sports car, police said.

Fulton came to the Oklahoma City FBI office Friday to turn himself in, according to a probable cause affidavit. He decided to talk to authorities after seeing a suspect picture in the newspaper that looked like him, the affidavit states.

He told authorities “his body was in the bank, but not his mind” because he had been up for four days using methamphetamine.

Fulton told police his girlfriend pressured him to rob the bank to help pay off a friend’s $1,400 debt.

Fulton was booked into Midwest City jail and is now in Oklahoma County jail on $40,000 bail.
