2 arrested in Kissimmee bank robberies
Two suspects have been arrested on Tuesday in two bank robberies in Kissimmee.
The first incident was an unarmed bank robbery at First Southern Bank. One of the suspects passed a note to the bank teller demanding money. The second suspect held the security doors open at the back of the bank.
As the two men fled with the money, a dye package exploded, and they dropped all of it. No one was injured at the scene and the men hid after fleeing from the bank.
The second incident occurred at SunTrust Bank. One of the suspects passed a note demanding money once again but he fled the area with nothing.
Officials later arrested Chaldon Foster, 57 and Elgin Bell, 35 for their participation in the First Southern Bank robbery.
Because the suspects are cooperating with detectives, they found out that while Foster attempted to rob the SunTrust Bank, Bell continued to hide.
Both suspects have been taken to the Osceola County Jail and charged with robbery without a firearm and criminal conspiracy.
