Officers located a Gainesville man late Wednesday who is accused of last week's hold-up of a High Springs bank.

Gainesville Police arrested Quinten O. Golston, 21, without incident, said High Springs Police Chief James Troiano.

A warrant had been obtained earlier in the day for Golston, who is accused of robbing the Capital City Bank branch on Santa Fe Boulevard on Sept. 26.

Another man, Dashawn Q. Lewis, 26, is accused of driving the getaway car, High Springs Police reported.

Lewis had already been arrested on a charge of accessory to robbery.

Gainesville Police also were looking for Golston in connection with unrelated burglary and grand theft charges.

Golston was released from the state prison in December after serving a 15-month sentence for grand theft and burglary of an occupied building.

No one was injured during the robbery, in which a man gave an employee a note and implied he was carrying a weapon, officers reported.
