CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A Hamilton County Grand Jury last week indicted two suspects in a slew of Cincinnati bank robberies.

Donnie Wayne Clontz II, 31, and Cortiana Pullens, 26, are accused with robbing seven banks total.

Clontz participated in all seven robberies, according to prosecutors, while Pullens participated in four.

The alleged robberies took place in November and December 2020.

The pair are accused of targeting a US Bank, two Fifth Third Banks and a Key Bank, according to the indictment.

Clontz is accused of robbing Northside Bank and Trust Co., another Fifth Third Bank and another US Bank location by himself.

Two of the Fifth Third Bank robberies, one at the Norwood branch and the other at the Mt. Washington branch, allegedly occurred on the same day, Nov. 24, 2020.
