JONESBORO, AR - The FBI today announced the arrest in Jonesboro of a Fort Benning, Georgia woman who was wanted on bank robbery charges in her native state.

According to Special Agent in Charge Gregory Jones of the FBI's Atlanta division, 28-year-old Kimberly Coleman was arrested without incident Saturday at the Econo Lodge Motel on Phillips Drive in Jonesboro.  The arrest was made by officers with the Jonesboro Police Department and Coleman was incarcerated at the Craighead County Detention Center.  She is scheduled to appear before a U.S. Magistrate today in Memphis.

Coleman is charged with the April 25 robbery of the Columbus Bank & Trust in Columbus, Georgia.  The charges are the result of a joint investigation of the FBI and the U.S. Army's Criminal Investigation Division at Fort Benning, Georgia.  It is believed that Coleman is married to an Army soldier stationed at Fort Benning.
