GULFPORT, Miss. (September 18, 2012)—A Texas woman and her daughter have notified court officials of their intent to accept a plea agreement in the armed robbery of a bank in Gulfport, Miss.
Evie Mearlene Herrin, 57, and Amelia Darci Crew, 30, have been in custody since March 26, when Gulfport police arrested them minutes after the holdup of a Regions Bank.
The women, who were living in Cleveland, Texas, are accused of taking just more than $12,000.
A similar federal indictment in Louisiana alleges the women robbed two other banks.
Court documents don't show if their guilty pleas in Gulfport, set for Oct. 1, will include the charges stemming from the Louisiana robberies.
