PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - Paragould Police are crediting a multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional investigation in the arrest of five people in connection with Friday mornings bank robbery at the Reynolds Road branch of the First National Bank in Paragould.

Police told Region 8 News that two Paragould men, Anthony Epley, 39, and Mauricio Resendez, 25, have been placed under arrest for their participation in the robbery.

Earnestina Fuentes, 42, Michael Frazier, 45, and Autum Meadows, 23, all of Paragould, are also in custody on charges of hindering apprehension.

A $1,000,000 bond has been set for both Epley and Resendez. Fuentes, Frazier and Meadows are all behind bars on a $25,000 bond.

Paragould Police say the Paragould SWAT team and DARE unit, along with Arkansas State Police, the Craighead County Sheriff's Office, the Jonesboro Police SWAT team, the Brookland Police Department and Greene County Constable Pete Higdon all assisted in the apprehension of the five. No additional suspects are being sought in the robbery.

However, this isn't the first time Resendez and Epley have been charged with stealing something. According to the Greene County Sheriff's Department, Resendez and Epley were accused of breaking into NEA Turf in June and stealing six Husqvarna chainsaws. Epley was also accused of stealing a gun from the Oak Grove Pawn Shop and the Country Antique and Pawn Shop later that month.
