LONE OAK, KY (KFVS) -

Police arrested two people after a bank robbery after someone walked into a Lone Oak bank and demanded money Wednesday morning.

A man and his girlfriend face several charges after police say they robbed the First National Bank at 3445 Lone Oak Road around 11 a.m.

After following up on several potential leads, police say they identified Donald J. Monday and Pamela D. Henderson as suspects.  They live just a few hundred yards from the bank.

After some surveillance of their Clinton Road mobile home, detectives executed a search warrant and found money, clothing thought to be worn in the robbery, and other items believed to be related to the crime.

Police found cocaine on Monday and a small amount of meth in the home within reach of an 8 year old.

Police also found two brand new big screen TVs, new cordless phones, Xbox 360, numerous games for the Xbox, DVDs, and a receipt for new furniture.

Detectives also found a van that is suspected to have been borrowed and driven by Henderson and Monday at the time of the robbery.  Jogging pants and a black stocking style hat believed to have been worn during the robbery were found in the van.

Monday and Henderson admitted to planning the robbery several hours before doing it, according to the McCracken County Sheriff's Department.

They told detectives they stole a pellet pistol from one of the local Wal-Marts, drove to the area of the bank and committed the crime, according to the sheriff's department.

Police say the two went to Bowling Green before returning home.

The child was placed in a safe home and social services were notified.

Donald "Jason" Monday, 33, of Lone Oak is charged with robbery 1st degree, possession of controlled substance in the first degree methamphetamine, possession of controlled substance in the first degree cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia, theft by unlawful taking under $500 (shoplifting).

Pamela D. Henderson, 29, is charged with complicity to robbery 1st degree, possession of controlled substance in the first degree methamphetamine, possession of controlled substance in the first degree cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia, theft by unlawful taking under $500 (shoplifting), and wanton endangerment 1st degree.
