CUMRU TWP., Pa. - Two men have been arrested after allegedly robbing a bank in Cumru Township on Monday.
One of the men, armed with what appeared to be a semiautomatic weapon, walked into the Santander Bank at 12 Parkside Avenue in Cumru Township around 1:15 p.m. and demanded money from a teller, according to police.
After being given cash, the suspect, later identified as Shawn Shannon Quinnones, ran across the parking lot to the passenger's seat of a 2003 Chevy Trailblazer and removed his mask, revealing his face, which was seen by a witness, police said.
Around 45 minutes later, police said they saw the truck parked outside a home in the 1200 block of Schuylkill Avenue in Reading. A short time later, two men came out of the home and got into the truck, driving a couple blocks down the street, police said.
That’s when police pounced, arresting Quinnones, 43, and the alleged getaway driver, Michael Hill, 28.
Police said the clothes used in the robbery were found in the residence, along with a black pellet gun and an amount of money consistent with what was taken from the bank.
Both men were charged with bank robbery and related charges. They were committed to the Berks County Jail on $100,000 bail each.
