A man wanted for allegedly robbing the same Aiken credit union on two separate occasions is now in custody.

Clarence Junior Green, 32, was arrested late last night after he contacted the West Columbia Police Department, according to the Aiken Department of Public Safety.

Green surrendered to West Columbia officers at a Columbia motel last night, according to Aiken Public Safety Sgt. Jake Mahoney.

Green currently is being held at the Lexington County Detention Center. He has been charged with two counts of bank robbery for the Sept. 21 and Nov. 13 robberies of the South Carolina State Credit Union, located at 210 Beaufort Street, NE.

At around 12:15 p.m. on Nov. 12, police say Green entered the bank, approached a teller and demanded money. After receiving an unknown amount of cash, he fled the scene in a red or burgundy colored Ford Tempo, police said.

The man did not present a weapon, and police do not believe he was armed.

On Sept. 21, police say Green entered the same credit union just after 9 a.m. and told a teller he wanted to open an account. The teller told him he needed to provide a Social Security card. The man left and returned a short time later and gave the teller a note demanding money.

In that case, he indicated he had a gun but never showed a weapon, police said.
