The FBI says Justice McCallister, 36, and Tiffany Jones, 23, were arrested after a brief foot chase following the hold-up at a U.S. Bank branch. The getaway driver has not yet been caught.
According to a federal complaint, an audit determined more than $112,000 was taken in the robbery, but that $7,500 of it is unaccounted for.
The FBI is investigating, a spokesman saying it’s possible there was a mistake in the audit or that some of the money blew away or something else. The bank is conducting a second audit to be sure of its figures.
