A 37-year-old female suspect has been arrested in connection with two bank robberies in the Metro East in the last month. The suspect, who is from Collinsville, is being held in the St. Clair County Jail awaiting charges following her arrest late last week.
The FBI, Maryville Police and police from Caseyville have been investigating the two robberies. The FCB Bank in Caseyville was robbed on November 7 with a black female as the suspect. The FCB Bank in Maryville was robbed last Wednesday with a female matching a similar description. No weapon was displayed in either case, and last week, the suspect fled in a car with no license plates. Police did obtain video surveillance from both banks and made the arrest on Thursday.
