Sparta man charged with robbing Warrenton's Citizens Bank

From the Augusta Chronicle story by Donna Stillinger:

Warren County Chief Deputy Sammy Purvis said a man entered the bank about 1:20 p.m. and demanded money. As he ran away, a dye pack placed with the cash exploded, leaving a trail for police to follow.
Evidence at the crime scene led the Georgia Bur­eau of Investigation and FBI to Ruff’s home. He was taken to Warren County and charged with armed robbery, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
