A man suspected of robbing a Fredericksburg bank Sept. 2 was arrested this week in Illinois.

Wesley Hadsell, 27, is the only suspect in last week's robbery of a BB&T bank, said Jim Shelhorse, city police spokesman. The man's address is unknown, but he apparently spent time in Ohio this summer.

The robbery occurred at the BB&T in the 400 block of Jefferson Davis Highway about 4:30 p.m. The robber gave the teller a note demanding money and left with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Hadsell was arrested this week after a vehicle pursuit in Kankakee, south of Chicago and off Interstate 57. Hadsell crashed the car and suffered minor injuries, police said.

His wife, 21-year-old Michelle Hadsell, was in the car when it crashed. She was not injured. Michelle Hadsell told police they had stopped in Fredericksburg that Friday, Shelhorse said.

The Hadsells were in Ohio late last month, according to NBC4 News in Columbus. They had been married for a year, but Michelle Hadsell had moved away.

Wesley Hadsell was indicted in Ohio late last month on charges including the assault and kidnapping of his wife, according to the television station's Web site.

Police said Wesley Hadsell is now cooperating with the FBI. Shelhorse said he would be extradited to Fredericksburg if he's charged with robbery.
