Bank robbery suspects arrested
By SUE WATSON
Four suspects have been arrested and charged in bank robberies in Marshall County last spring and summer and a fifth suspect is still at large, according to sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
The suspects were rounded up in Memphis and will be extradited back to the county, he said.
Five suspects, four of whom have been named, are charged with the armed robbery of the Bank of Holly Springs Slayden Branch May 19. Three of the suspects are charged with the armed robbery of the Citizens Bank at Barton June 10.
Dickerson said the four suspects in the Slayden bank robbery and the addresses they gave to authorities upon arrest are Marcus Westbrook, 23, of 5965 East Point Cove, Apartment 2, Memphis, Tenn.; Starlet Kizer, 22, of 7764 Birdwood Drive, Memphis; Angela Bryson Miller, 44, of 7764 Birdwood Drive, Memphis; and William Albright, 20, of 5965 East Point Cove, Apartment 2, Memphis. The fifth suspect is at large and being sought by the Gulf Coast Regional Task Force, U.S. Marshals office, he said.
Kizer and Bryson, both females, are also charged in the armed robbery of the Barton Branch of the Citizens Bank along with the suspect at large, Dickerson said.
Two guns and two automobiles were recovered from a Shelby County residence when arrest warrants were served. The guns are being held as evidence in the armed robbery of the banks and the vehicles are undergoing a thorough forensics check for evidence in Marshall County. Search of the residence also produced evidence of check forgery against the Marshall County chancery clerk’s office, some of those fraudulent checks having also been produced with the chancery clerk’s name on them, Dickerson said.
A search of the Shelby County residence also produced computer equipment and paper trails pertinent to the investigations, he said.
The suspects were expected to be indicted by a Federal Court grand jury in Oxford on the bank robbery charges Tuesday, he said.
Sheriff Dickerson expressed appreciation
for the many hours of dedicated service involved in the identification
and apprehension of the suspects in the two bank robberies. Those included
his investigative team at the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department,
led by Maj. Kelly McMillen, and officers with the Shelby County Swat
Team, the Secret Service and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
