Teller Locked Up Would-Be Bank Robbers, Police Say

Women Arrested In Chase Bank Robbery Attempt

Three women were arrested Friday after a foiled bank robbery attempt on Indianapolis' northeast side.

Indianapolis police were called to a Chase Bank at 3950 Meadows Drive at about 9:40 a.m.

Police said they found two women -- Lanae Parks, 18, and Tanicia Sneed, 19 -- locked in the bank's security doors.

According to a police report, a teller told officers that Parks came to the counter and gave her a note that said, "B****, give me the money."

The teller didn't immediately respond to the request, police said, and Parks walked to the front of the bank, through the security doors, police said.

The teller then locked those doors, keeping Parks inside with Sneed, who was already in the same area, police said.

Employees called 911, leading to the arrest of both women and Shaming Woods, 18, who was waiting in a car outside the bank, police said.

The women were arrested on charges of attempted robbery.
