Three People Arrested In Hermitage Bank Robbery, Shooting
NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Officials with the Federal Bureau of Investigation have confirmed that three people have been arrested in connection with last week's robbery of Pinnacle National Bank in Hermitage.
Police said that the suspect walked into the bank on Andrew Jackson Parkway just after 2 p.m. on Tuesday July 27 and fired shots at an employee. He was able to flee the scene with cash. The suspect appeared to have painted his face during the robbery to hide his identity.
According to officials, Chad Warrick, 31, Angela Camarda, 30and Cynthia Heinz, 37 plotted together to commit the robbery. Warrick entered the bank, his face covered in makeup and robbed the branch while Heinz waited in a nearby parking lot. Camarda was alleged to have met with Warrick and Heinz in the Hermitage area before and after the robbery.
"The Nashville community, law enforcement and citizens alike, were very concerned about the violence and style of this makeup-wearing robber," Chief Steve Anderson said. "Since the robbery on Tuesday of last week, Crime Stoppers received nearly a dozen anonymous tips. In the end, that community involvement, combined with outstanding investigative work, led to these three persons being taken into custody."
Police said that all three suspects would be charged with bank robbery in federal court. Warrick and Camarda were also identified as convicted felons.
"From bank robberies to serial rape defendants who have fled the United States, the Nashville area Violent Crimes Task Force has a track record of success in bringing accused violent criminals to justice," said Aaron T. Ford, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI's West & Middle Tennessee Division. "Having members of local law enforcement designated as special federal agents on the Task Force enhances investigations and the safety of our communities."
