The following is a Press Release from the Louisiana State Police:
On February 13, 2012, detectives assigned to the Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations along with special agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) were asked to investigate a bank robbery that occurred at the Iberia Bank in Kinder, LA in Allen Parish.

On March 26, 2012, the two robbed a bank in Gulfport, Mississippi. Herrin and Crew were stopped in Harrison County, MS and were arrested and booked into Harrison County Jail where Amelia Crew is being held. Her mother is an area hospital.
Arrest warrants for armed robbery from Allen Parish and Calcasieu Parish have been served on Herrin and Crew.
