Rickie Lawrence Gardner of Moulton has stated he robbed the local Bank Independent this morning because he needed a place to stay. Garnder, 33, has no major criminal record and told authorities that he had been badly injured in a four-wheeler accident and was at risk of losing his job at International Paper in Courtland. All the money was recovered after police took Gardner into custody. He remains in the Lawrence County Jail. A mental evaluation seems likely.
