Panama City Police have solved a bank robbery. 

One suspect, charged with principal to the robbery, is in local custody, said Chief Scott Ervin. Police also have another suspect, who is expected to be charged with the robbery itself, later today.

Last Thursday, a man walked into the Summit Bank on 23rd Street and demanded money from the teller. He then escaped the bank and the area despite a heavy police response immediately after the robbery.

According to court records, Andrea Kennedy, admitted to assisting the suspect by ‘scouting out’ the location. 

“This allowed the co-defendant to enter the bank at an opportune time … and demand money from the teller,” officers wrote in Kennedy’s arrest affidavit. 

Kennedy is charged with principal to bank robbery.

This is a developing story and we will have more for you online later today and tonight at 5 and 6.
