Connersville residents Billy Jack Steele and Christopher Mark Dye both had their bond assigned Monday in Dearborn Circuit Court. They are charged with Robbery, Conspiracy to Commit Robbery, Theft, and Conspiracy to Commit Theft.
The U.S. Bank branch on Second Street was hit Wednesday, Dec. 1 when Steele, 34, entered the bank and demanded the teller give him money according to the Dearborn County Prosecutor’s Office.
Steele told the teller she had “five seconds to do it.”
Dye, 32, and Steele were caught by Rising Sun Police as they drove on State Road 56 from the crime scene where Aurora Police and Dearborn County Sheriff’s investigators were gathering evidence. The stolen money was recovered.
"The departments involved all did a tremendous job quickly apprehending the suspects and obtaining the necessary evidence to bring these people to justice," said Dearborn-Ohio County Prosecutor Aaron Negangard.
Negangard said he anticipates filing an additional charge of being a habitual offender against Steele.
