2 arrested in connection with armed robbery at Tri-State bank

Person of interest detained after bank robbery in Dearborn County

DEARBORN COUNTY, Ind. (FOX19) - Two people from Indianapolis have been arrested in connection with a bank robbery in Greendale Thursday afternoon.

Investigators arrested Edward Collier, 44, and Rheonia Jackson, 24, on robbery charges following a traffic stop.

Officers responded to the US Bank on Ridge Avenue in Greendale, Indiana around 1 p.m.

Indiana State Police say a man wearing a disguise entered the bank, displayed a gun and demanded money from the teller.

“Fortunately no one was injured,” ISP Sgt. Stephen Wheeles said, "and the teller complied with his request.'

The suspect fled in an “orangish” Dodge Charger, complete with a spoiler and sunroof, with the money.

“That’s a distinct color,” Wheeles said. “There are not many of those around.”

Troopers from ISP’s Indianapolis post spotted a car that matched the description and conducted the traffic stop sometime shortly after 6 p.m. Thursday.

Wheeles says the investigation is ongoing and that more information will be released.
