INDIANAPOLIS — A man accused of robbing a Lexington bank over the weekend was arrested after leading police on a high-speed chase.

The Federal Bureau of Investigations says a masked man entered the Fifth Third Bank on 82nd Street in Indianapolis just before 11 a.m. and demanded cash from the teller's drawers and vault. After getting an undisclosed amount of money, the suspect then ordered employees to lay on the ground and put their hands on their heads.

Witnesses and bank employees were able to provide police with a description of the getaway vehicle, according to the FBI, and a short time later Lawrence Police spotted the suspect and attempted a traffic stop. The suspect fled from police and led them on a high-speed chase that lasted several minutes until the suspect crashed in the area of 46th Street and Andover Road.

The lone occupant of the vehicle, Andreas Calhoun, 34, was taken into custody at the scene, according to the FBI. A gun, an undisclosed amounto of cash and other items that were "relevant to the investigation" were also recovered from the vehicle.

The incident remains under investigation.

Calhoun faces multiple federal charges.
