KINGSTON — Christopher Prince and Diana Poole of the Philadelphia area are charged with bank robbery.
The couple from the Philadelphia area are accused of robbing Community Bank in Edwardsville on June 11.
Police said surveillance pictures caught them both in the bank, taking cash and then running off.
After about two weeks on the run, cops said they caught them in Montgomery County Wednesday morning.
“We’ve been working on it with several departments, the FBI, state police. We were given very good leads on the whereabouts of these individuals,” said Edwardsville Police Officer Mike Lehman,
Investigators said Prince and Poole have been cooperative, admitting to the robbery.
When asked why he robbed the bank, Price told Newswatch 16 “I don’t know. I’ve got a drug problem. That’s about it. “
Edwardsville police said the two were in Luzerne County for drug rehab at the time of the bank robbery.
Surprisingly, police say both suspects are relieved to have been caught.
“The female actually said she’s glad she’s caught. She wants to get some drug rehab and move on with her life,” said Officer Lehman.
The two were charged in Kingston late Wednesday afternoon and jailed in lieu of $60,000 bail.
