MORLEY, MO (KFVS) -

Two more suspects were arrested after a bank robbery in Morley on Oct. 10.

It happened at the First Commercial Bank in Morley.

Alisha D. Porter, 30, of Morley, Roger R. Clayton, 36, of Davenport, Iowa, Candice L. Wright a/k/a Candice L. Brittman, 26, of Chicago, and Joshua L. Thompson, 25, of Sikeston are all charged with robbery in the first degree.

Porter's and Clayton's bond is set at $100,000 each. Wright's and Thompson's bond is set at $150,000 each.

Porter and Thompson were being held in the Scott County Jail.

Clayton and Wright  Brittman were being held in the state of Ohio, awaiting extradition back to Scott County.

Around 8 a.m. on October 10, two males, armed with a handgun, forced their way into the bank at 23134 U.S. Highway 61. An employee was unlocking the business. The suspects held the employee at gun point and took an undisclosed amount of currency before fleeing.

The sheriff and other deputies arrived within minutes of the event but suspects had already left on foot and were picked up by an accomplice.

Scott County Sheriff Rick Walter said since the day of the robbery, his office had been working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation to bring this case to a close.

Sheriff Walter said there is still more work to be done on this investigation and asks that anyone with any information contact either his office at 545-3525 or the FBI Office at 335-2511.
