3 Pennsylvania bank robbery suspects tracked by GPS in money
LANCASTER — Police say three would-be robbers got more than the $5,967 they thought they had successfully stolen from a central Pennsylvania bank.
That’s because the teller at the Fulton Bank in West Lampeter Township also put a GPS tracking device in with the cash.
LNP reports that’s how 26-year-old Christopher Benjamin, 27-year-old Jerome Bell, and 21-year-old Adreanna Torres found themselves arrested minutes later.
Township police say Bell and Torres entered the bank about 3:45 p.m. Tuesday then ran outside to a car Benjamin had waiting.
Police say the found the backpack containing the money, the GPS unit and the suspects minutes later.
Online court records don’t list attorneys for the trio, who remained in the Lancaster County jail on Thursday, and face a preliminary hearing June 21.
