Fort Wayne Police have now arrested three suspects in a credit union robbery early Monday morning on Spy Run Avenue.Police identified those jailed as Trey T. Jackson, 25; DeAngelo Copeland, 36; and Nicole A. Andrews, 35, all of Fort Wayne.

Police were called at 8:57 a.m. after a female employee of Power One Federal Credit Union said she was ambushed by two male attackers as she was entering the credit union; she believed one of the men was armed with a handgun, according to FWPD spokeswoman Raquel Foster. The men reportedly pushed the victim into the building at 1520 Spy Run Ave., and shoved her to the floor, injuring her face. A News-Sentinel reporter on the scene saw an employee with a bloodied face.

There was a second employee inside the credit union when the robbery occurred and the robbers fled with an unknown amount of cash.

When a responding police officer tried to stop a man matching a description provided, the man ran and was chased by the officer, according to Foster. The officer apprehended him at Baltes Avenue and Spy Run. Police found a firearm on the suspect, according to Foster.

During the course of the investigation, Andrews was identified as being the get-away driver. She and Copeland were apprehended in the 900 block of Milton Avenue, Foster said Monday afternoon.

Police found a sweatshirt and gloves believed to have been left behind by the second suspect in the 500 block of Wagner Street, according to scanner traffic.

Nearby North Side High School at State Boulevard and Spy Run Avenue was placed onto lock-down during the investigation.

This crime remains under investigation by the Northeast Indiana Bank Robbery Task Force. The task force is composed of investigators with the FWPD, Allen County Sheriff Department, Indiana State Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
