DEARBORN COUNTY, Ind.– Police say two Indianapolis residents were arrested Thursday evening on charges related to a Greendale bank robbery.

Around 1 p.m. Thursday, officers were called to the U.S. Bank on Ridge Avenue in Greendale. Greendale sits on the Indiana-Ohio border just west of Elizabethtown.

Investigators say a man wearing a disguise entered the bank, displayed a handgun and demanded money from the teller. The suspect left the bank in a Buick after getting an undisclosed amount of money.

Not long after, police spotted a Buick parked near the bank. It was unoccupied but the engine was still running.

Surveillance cameras from the area show a man matching the suspect’s description parked the Buick and got into a red Dodge Charger that was being driven by someone else.

This is the disguise police say Collier used in the robbery.

Police say the Buick was reported stolen out of Indianapolis.

Around 4 p.m. Thursday, an Indiana State Police (ISP) trooper spotted a Charger matching the suspect car’s description on I-74 approaching Indianapolis. The trooper pulled the car over.

Edward Collier, 44, and Rheonia Jackson, 24, were inside the car, along with “US currency, a handgun, and other evidence related to the bank robbery,” according to ISP.

Both suspects were arrested and transported to the Dearborn County Jail on charges of robbery while armed with a deadly weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery while armed with a deadly weapon.
