Man, woman arrested in connection to bank robbery
City Trends, Shoe Show and Perfect Nails each reported a common trend with some cash they received Tuesday afternoon: bills stained with red dye.
Police say the red money was from the First Citizen’s Bank robbery Tuesday morning.
About 10 a.m., a man walked into the bank on N. Main Street, handed a teller a note and demanded money. As he was running about a block away from the bank, a dye pack in the sack of money exploded. Officers later found some of the red-stained cash and a small pistol in a parking lot.
On Tuesday afternoon, police arrested Marvin Lee Nelson, 53, on charges of felony robbery with a firearm. They also arrested Carolyn Dawn Hunt, 35, on charges for felony accessory after the fact. Police say she shopped at several area stores using money stolen from the bank robbery.
Police found Nelson driving a white Cadillac near the stores where Hunt had been shopping, according High Point police Lt. Kevin Ray.
Nelson, also known as Cigarette, Baby Face and Mule, was being held at the Guilford County Jail in High Point on Wednesday with a secured bond of $100,000. Hunt also was in jail on a $50,000 secured bond. Police say Hunt and Nelson were friends but are unaware of any relationship beyond that.
Both Hunt and Nelson’s court date is set for June 13.
