Fishers bank robbery suspects in custody

PD: Community Bank robbed Wednesday morning

FISHERS, Ind. - The Community Bank in the 12000 block of Reynolds Drive was robbed Wednesday morning, police in Hamilton County confirmed.

FBI Special Agent In Charge Robert Jones said that an armed and dangerous group of three men and two women held up the bank and escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Just before the bank opened for business, two armed suspects forced their way into the building as an employee opened the doors.

The suspects then fled the bank in the employee's vehicle, leaving the employee at the bank.

Another suspicious vehicle spotted in the area also fled the scene. The suspects inside the vehicle were arrested without incident. Suspects in a third vehicle jumped out of the car and fled on foot, police said.

"After a short chase, one suspect was taken into custody near Interstate 69 and 96th Street near the Baymont Inn motel," Jones said.

A second suspect was found hiding in a closet in the same motel and taken into custody without incident.

The suspects were identified as Deandre Amour, 37, Duryea Rogers, 26, Olivia Haiflich, 20 and Tahita Burnett, 40. The last suspect's identity was not confirmed, officials said.

Agent Jones said that the group had been under surveillance by the FBI and the Fishers Police Department for the last several weeks.

"This seems to be a large well-organized group of professional crew that seems to know what they are doing, or at least to know what they were doing prior to today," Jones said.

Fishers Police Chief George Kehl said the crew could be linked to prior robberies in the area.

No injuries were reported.
