LAS VEGAS—On April 13, 2013, the FBI arrested 49-year-old Derrick Young, 44-year-old Thomas Arnold Lewis, and 30-year-old Rodriguez Madden for allegedly committing a bank robbery in North Las Vegas.
According to a federal complaint filed in the United States District Court of Nevada, the suspects allegedly robbed the Bank of America located at 2445 E. Centennial Parkway in North Las Vegas, Nevada.
At about 12:55 p.m. on April 13, 2013, two men later identified as Derrick Young and Thomas Arnold Lewis entered the Bank of America while Rodriguez Madden waited outside. Young and Lewis wore masks over their faces and brandished semi-automatic pistols. Both men jumped the counter while making oral demands for money. After taking cash, the men vaulted back over the counter and ran out of the bank. All three men escaped in a vehicle that had been allegedly stolen that morning.
While being pursued by law enforcement, the first vehicle was abandoned in a residential area near Tropical and Statz, where it hit the curb and was damaged. Two of the robbers ran to another allegedly stolen vehicle and left the area, while the third robber left on foot. The second vehicle was abandoned near the area of Pecos and Remington Grove. All three suspects were taken into custody by the FBI, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and North Las Vegas Police Department. Law enforcement recovered the money, weapons, masks, gloves, and other clothing. No one was hurt during the robbery.
