Posted: Updated:


Both suspects in the robbery of Hancock County Savings Bank are now in custody.

Russell Culbreth, 34, and Neredia Jade Marie Ferrer, 19, are being held in the Cumberland County jail in North Carolina.

Culbreth confessed to three separate robberies in West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina.

He allegedly entered the Hancock County Savings Bank in New Cumberland on Feb. 19 and gave a note to the cashier and took an undisclosed amount of money before fleeing the scene on foot.

Ferrer, who is not believed  to be involved with the robberies in Virginia and North Carolina, was taken into custody on the warrants out of Hancock County and is awaiting extradition.




Hancock County authorities say the man wanted for allegedly robbing the Hancock County Savings and Loan was arrested in North Carolina on Tuesday.

Hancock County Sheriff Ralph Fletcher said 34-year-old Russell Frederick Culbreth is behind bars.

The other suspect 19-year-old Neredia Jade Marier Ferrer is still on the run. Fletcher said Culbreth was arrested during a bank robbery in Fayetteville, North Carolina and he may be responsible for a robbery in Virginia.

This story is still developing and the sheriff plans to release more details Wednesday.
