Special Agent in Charge (SAC) Robert Jones of the Indianapolis Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Chief George Kehl of the Fishers Police Department jointly announce the arrest of five individuals in the armed robbery of Community Bank branch at 12154 Reynolds Drive in Fishers, Indiana, that occurred this morning.

On Wednesday, June 26, 2013, at approximately 8:00 a.m., prior to the bank’s opening, two males confronted a bank employee who was opening the bank and violently forced their way at gunpoint into the bank. The subjects fled the bank in the bank employee’s vehicle, leaving the employee in the bank. Two vehicles containing additional subjects also fled the area. A traffic stop was initiated by the Fishers Police Department in an attempt to stop all three vehicles. The subjects of two of the vehicles complied and were arrested without incident. The subjects of the third vehicle stopped and fled on foot. After a brief foot pursuit, one subject was arrested across the street from the Baymont Suites hotel located at 9790 North by Northeast Boulevard in Fishers. The second subject fled into the Baymont Suites hotel. That subject was discovered hiding in a closet in the hotel and was arrested without incident.

Arrested were Deandre Armour, age 37; Duryea Rogers, age 26; Olivia Haiflich, age 20; Tahita Burnett, age 40; and an additional male whose identity has not yet been confirmed.

The Evidence Response Teams from the FBI and the Fishers Police Department have been deployed to various locations in furtherance of this investigation.

All of the arrestees are presumed innocent and are entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
