Okaloosa County sheriff’s deputies have arrested a Ft. Walton Beach couple in connection with last Friday’s robbery of a bank in Ocean City.
Investigators say a woman robbed the bank and she is identified as 29-year-old China Nico Till. She placed an object on the counter in front of a teller, claiming it was a bomb. It turned out it wasn’t.
Investigators believe the woman and her husband, 31-year-old Donald Gene Till, called in bomb threats to area Wal-Mart’s and a Sheraton Hotel as diversions for the bank robbery.
Deputies arrested the pair in a traffic stop Friday afternoon on Highway 98 in Florosa.
They had a B-B gun in their possession.
Investigators believe the couple also robbed a Louisiana bank on Wednesday.
