A 24-year-old Winchester man was arrested early Friday morning in connection with two bank robberies at United Bank. Robert Austin Scott was taken into custody around 7:30 Friday morning.

A firearm and clothing were taken from the residence. A second search warrant was executed by detectives on a truck at the residence and clothing was taken. Scott is charged with two counts of armed robbery and use of a firearm in commission of a felony. An investigation led detectives with the Criminal Investigations Division to Scott.
