CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - A brother and sister have been charged in Federal Court with robbing the People's Bank of Altenburg and stealing more than $9,000 on December 14, 2010.

Theresa A. Aguilera, of Perryville, and her brother Keith W. Overbey, also of Perryville, were charged in a four count federal indictment in Cape Girardeau on March 17, 2011 for their part in the December 2010 robbery of the People's Bank of Altenburg.

According to court documents, Overbey stole $9,325 from the bank using violence and intimidation while Aguilera assaulted and put in jeopardy a person's life by the use of a firearm, a Nortinco SKS.

"Both subjects are currently incarcerated for state charges" said Perry County Sheriff Gary J. Schaaf.  "Overbey locally on Burglary charges and Aguilera in the Department of Corrections for Burglary charges."

"I would like to commend Det. Brian McCain of the Perry County Sheriff's Office and Brian Ritter of the FBI for all the work they did on this case" said Sheriff Schaaf.  "And once again I want to thank all the local agencies who responded to the initial call.  Only through inter-agency cooperation can these sorts of things be resolved in a positive manner."

Aguilera has prior convictions of Class C felony stealing and burglary going back to 1996, according to court documents. 

And, documents state that Overbey had prior convictions of Class C felony stealing stemming from 1987 and being a felon in possession of a firearm as recently as 2002.

Surveillance video from the bank in December 2010 showed someone wearing a ski mask and bulky clothes inside the bank, at times pointing an assault rifle at a teller.  According to Perry County Sheriff Terry Schaaf, the teller said the suspect said they would kill her if she didn't give him money.

No one was injured in the incident.

After getting the cash, witnesses reported seeing the suspect leave in a tan colored mid-90's Ford Taurus with a woman wearing a red coat.  The vehicle's license plates were covered with duct tape.

The couple had left in the Taurus going south on Highway A toward Frohna.
