The two suspects involved in an armed bank robbery at the First National Bank of Monterey on Monday afternoon have been formally charged in the incident.
The lead detective in the case, Scott Taylor from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department, said Scott Freeman and Michelle Riley were charged in a probable cause hearing held this week.
Freeman, 34, of Winamac has been charged with Robbery and because the action involved a weapon, the classification of the charge was elevated to a Class B felony. He is being held in the Pulaski County Jail on a $250,000 bond. Riley, 29, of Culver has been charged with Aiding in a Robbery, a Class B felony. Riley is being held in the Pulaski County Jail on a $150,000 bond.
The pair reportedly confessed to limited involvement in the armed robbery at the bank in Monterey. Freeman allegedly entered the bank around 1:30 p.m. ET, brandished a long-barreled revolver and demanded cash.
Police are looking into Freeman’s criminal history to determine if an habitual offender charge is warranted in this case.
