Man Indicted In Greenville Bank Robbery

Posted: Updated:
Jackson - A federal grand jury has indicted a man related to a bank robbery in the Mississippi Delta that investigators say began with a bomb threat to a local school to divert police away from the heist.
    
Wilbert Parish Jr. was indicted on two counts related to the robbery and another stemming from the bomb threat. His arraignment is scheduled for Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Greenville.
    
He faces up to life in prison if convicted of the most serious charge.
    
Federal public defender Greg Park had no comment on Friday.
    
An affidavit says three men rushed into Planters Bank and Trust Company in Greenville on Sept. 10 and stole $600,425, though a dye pack exploded and it was recovered. Police say another suspect was the get-away driver.
