York Area Regional Police arrested two people they say robbed a bank in Windsor Township Monday afternoon.
Police were sent to the M&T Bank at 750 Lombard Road in Windsor Township about 1:45 p.m. for a reported robbery.
Police received information on the robbers' vehicle, and the vehicle was found inside a garage in the Windsor borough, the department said in a news release.
Two suspects, Jacob Sheckells, 27, and Felicia Redifer, 28, tried leaving that home in a different vehicle, according to police.
Both Sheckells and Redifer are charged with robbery of a financial institution and conspiracy to commit robbery of a financial institution.
Arrest: According to charging documents, Redifer and Sheckells, both of 2 Patterson Ave., were seen leaving their street in a blue Chevrolet Cavalier, and the two matched descriptions of people who robbed the M&T Bank.
The two were detained, police said, and a neighbor told police that Sheckells drives a Ford Ranger, which was at Sheckells' residence. The vehicle matched the description of the vehicle seen leaving the bank following the robbery, documents state.
Police then spoke with the two, and Sheckells admitted to robbing the bank, police said. He took them into his trailer and led them into the bedroom, where the money was hidden in a floor heater vent, police said.
Sheckells also pulled out what he was wearing during the robbery, which was all in the back of his truck, according to charging documents.
Police say the two were taken to the department, where Redifer denied knowing that Sheckells was going to rob the bank, police said.
She said Sheckells told her to park at the business next to the bank, and he then entered the bank and fled, court documents state. Redifer told police she knew he robbed the bank once he got into the car, and she drove the two of them home, police said.
She told officials that they were trying to drive away from their house when police stopped them, documents state.
State police and Lower Windsor Township Police assisted in apprehending the two.
The two were arraigned on the charges Monday night. As of Thursday, Redifer and Sheckells remained in York County Prison in lieu of $50,000 and $150,000 bail, respectively.
Their preliminary hearing is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. July 24 at District Judge John Fishel's office.
