The suspect then allegedly took off with the bakery's moneybag, which contained an undisclosed amount of cash.

Knoxville Police Department officers say they later located the suspect in Knoxville. He was taken into custody for drug charges.

Officials say the suspect must first face charges in Knox County before he can be released to the Blount County Sheriff's Office.

The suspect's identity has not yet been released. He is currently being held in the Knox County Jail.

Deputies say additional charges against other individuals could be forthcoming.
