Alleged Bank Robbers Suspected in Other Holdups

By  | 

The suspects accused of robbing a College Station bank are also suspects in armed robberies in other parts of the state.

It started April 15 when the State Bank branch on Wellborn Road was robbed at gunpoint.

Since then, two people were arrested in the Dallas area on May 5. And three more suspects were arrested this week in Arkansas.

Now Arlington Police tell us they believe Chuck Oliver, 37, Darren Mack, 22 and Edward Crain, 23, may be responsible for armed robberies, other than the College Station holdup.

The three Dallas-area men were arrested Thursday.

West Memphis Police say they seized more than $18,000 in cash and two weapons.

Also arrested was Wayland Perry, 27, of Arlington, who is wanted on a murder charge in Arlington.

It's still not clear how the three bank robbery suspects knew Perry, or even if they knew he was wanted for murder.

It's also not known how Jaron Washington, 19, or Stacey Maloney, 25, fit into the picture.

They were arrested last week in connection with the State Bank robbery.

Now, Arlington Police tell us none of the suspects arrested in Arkansas is fighting extradition, so investigators hope to learn more when the men arrive sometime early next week.

If the three College Station bank robbery suspects are connected to similar crimes in the Dallas-area, it will be up to a judge to decide whether they stay in the Metroplex or come to Brazos County.
