Authorities arrested a 42-year-old UAMS Medical Center nurse in the midday robbery of a Pulaski County bank Thursday, according to a Pulaski County sheriff's office report.

Jason Christopher Brixey of Little Rock was arrested about 12:30 p.m. in the 3000 block of Circle Lake Drive after authorities say he robbed the Simmons Bank at Arch Street Pike and Atwood Road and drove away on a white motorcycle, according to the report.

Authorities reportedly found Brixey through a tracker hidden in the stolen cash.

Sheriff's office spokesman Lt. Cody Burk said deputies found "firearms and cash from the bank" with Brixey.

Brixey faces charges of aggravated robbery and theft of property.

The report listed Brixey's employer as UAMS and his occupation as registered nurse.

He is being held in the Pulaski County jail without bail, according to online records.

8. Quickly check the money/bag.

23. Never have a WHITE motorcycle as the "get-away" vehicle. 😳🤔😗

Nursin' ain't easy. He may have been hooked on the opioids. Always use a stolen vehicle as your getaway ride!

This is so out of character for this person. Something about this is real fishy. Don't be so quick to judge.

Bank robbery is almost always a stupid idea nowadays. Even with the grocery store next door now apparently closed, he probably coulda got more money AND done less time if he'd robbed any of the businesses around it in the Landmark community. And though it's a Federal crime, it's NOT a "Club Fed" crime; he'll probably wish he was in Cummins instead.

Had this THUG been a different color...... there would be more derogatory comments. Ole whitey talking about "state workers don't make much". Like it's ok that he can rob a bank. Hell RNs make good money. This guy is simply a THUG.

That hospital post people's pay online. Why the heck would he rob a bank if he makes that much money? Nothing sounds fishy about his character. He is greedy. That thug is gonna do some serious time.
