JUNE 2, 2004 - Posted at 2:28 p.m. CDT

 

SIKESTON, MO - A 22-year-old Southeast Missouri woman is behind bars and facing armed robbery charges after being recognized on the TV program "America's Most Wanted."

Naomi Bates of Sikeston had been sought for the armed robbery, in October, of the Fifth Third Bank of Indianapolis.  She was arrested last week after allegations against her aired on the Fox network program.

Police say Bates admitted her involvement in the robbery in questioning by Indianapolis and  Sikeston detectives, but did not name her accomplice, who remains at large.

Police in Sikeston and nearby Charleston were contacted after the May 22 segment of the program featured the incident.  "America's Most Wanted" had received several calls naming Betts as the suspect and stating she was in the Sikeston/Charleston area.
