Three arrested in Pueblo bank robbery

PUEBLO, Colo. - Police say it took detectives just two days to identify and track down three people who they say robbed a bank near the state fairgrounds on Tuesday.

Christopher Nelson, 29, Chad Shepard, 34, and Tanya West, 33, are facing charges for aggravated robbery. 

The Bank, located at 2 Amherst Avenue, was robbed at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, February 4, 2014.

Police say a masked man walked into the bank and robbed it. After that they say he ran out and got away in an older model Chevy pickup.

Using surveillance video, police were able to get a license plate number and determine that someone else was driving the truck when it pulled into the parking lot earlier in the day.

On Thursday, February 6, 2014, police say they searched a home in the 3000 block of Winnipeg Street, near W. Pueblo Blvd. and S. Prairie Ave. They say they found items related to the bank robbery inside the home.

The trio was arrested and booked into the Pueblo County Jail. They are being held on bond amounts ranging from $100,000 to $250,000.
