A man wanted for an armed robbery in Cleveland was arrested today in Homestead.

Homestead police and the FBI in Pittsburgh arrested Charles Moore, 29, of the Cleveland area without incident along the street, according to the Pittsburgh division of the FBI.

Mr. Moore had robbed a PNC Bank in Shaker Heights, Ohio, on July 9, according to the FBI. During the robbery, he entered the bank, jumped over the teller counter and robbed several tellers at gunpoint. He fled on foot with an undetermined amount of money.

He has been in Pittsburgh for an undisclosed amount of time, where he has contacts but not family, FBI spokeswoman Kelly Kochamba said.

"There is no indication, at this time, that he was planning on something similar here," she said.
