Police in Augusta County have arrested two people suspected to be involved in the bank robbery at Sona Bank in New Market on Thursday morning.
According to a release from New Market Police Chief Chris Rinker, Augusta County sheriff’s deputies arrested George G. Wood, 50, and Stacy D. Bevan, 43, both of Waynesboro, on Saturday evening. The New Market Police Department charged the man and woman with conspiracy to commit a felony and larceny of bank notes.
On Thursday morning police were summoned to Sona Bank after a man walked in, presented a note to a teller demanding money and then left with an unspecified amount of money.
Security cameras showed a man with dark hair and a beard, wearing a black jacket. Footage and information released by the police and Sona Bank did not previously show a woman involved in the incident.
On Saturday, New Market police said they were looking for a vehicle they believed was involved in the incident, a silver Ford Taurus manufactured between 2000 and 2006.
According to the press release Sunday evening, Rinker is expecting to file more charges against Wood and Bevan.
According to the statewide courts database, Bevan has several minor traffic offenses. The database does not show any history for Wood.
