OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) -The woman suspected of robbing an Ocean Springs bank Wednesday afternoon was captured in D’Iberville just hours after the alleged crime.
Detective Capt. William Jackson, with the Oceans Springs Police Department, said anonymous tips led investigators to Brittnei Farmer, of Saucier. She is charged with armed robbery.
Jackson said police have not recovered the stolen money, and investigators believe Farmer may have thrown it off the bridge into Fort Bayou. The police department will use boats to search for the money today.
Ocean Springs police responded to an armed bank robbery at the Hancock Bank on Hwy. 90 around 2 p.m.
Authorities said a female suspect wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and sunglasses pulled out two knives and demanded money from a bank teller. After taking the money, police say Farmer may have then robbed a customer.
Police said as Farmer was leaving the store, she fell down, causing the red dye pack in the bag of money to explode. Rest of article.
Not too bright, is she?
