A Kennesaw man engaged in a high speed chase with Gilmer County deputies after he allegedly was involved in an armed robbery at a bank in Fannin County.
In a social media post on the Gilmer County Sheriff's Office Facebook page, authorities said law enforcement around 10:15 a.m. received a BOLO for a black vehicle with tinted windows connected with an armed bank robbery in Fannin County
Gilmer County deputies spotted the vehicle fitting the description headed south on Hwy. 515 shortly after receiving the BOLO. The social media post said the vehicle fled at a high rate of speed. Deputies followed the vehicle into Pickens County where it turned north on Old Hwy. 5 at the Ga. 136 connector. Deputies then executed a pit maneuver to stop the vehicle.
At that point Brandon David Nunnelly was taken custody without incident. The suspect was transported to Piedmont Mountainside Hospital to be checked for possible minor injuries.
Nunnelly will be charged with multiple traffic violations in Gilmer County. The Fannin County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the bank robbery and will issue charges in that incident. At last report, no additional information had been released on the bank robbery.
