Mother and Daughter Guilty in Bank Robbery
A mother and daughter have pleaded guilty in the armed robbery of a Gulfport bank.
Authorities say in a news release that 58-year-old Evie Mearlene Herrin and 30-year-old Amelia Darci Crew, both of Cleveland, Texas, pleaded guilty Monday.
Court papers alleged the mother robbed the bank while wearing a wig, sunglasses and a hospital mask, and her daughter drove the getaway car with a Texas tag.
The women are accused of taking $12,641from Regions Bank in Gulfport.
A federal indictment in Louisiana alleges the women robbed two other banks. They are accused in the Feb. 13 holdup of an Iberia Bank branch in Kinder, La., where about $6,000 was taken, and the March 15 holdup of a MidSouth Bank branch in Sulphur, La., where about $4,730 was taken.
