On Friday July 12, 2013, Central Precinct officers responded to the Key Bank branch located at 3515 Southwest Troy Street on the report of a bank robbery.

Officers arrived in the area and contacted bank employees who told police that the female suspect implied a weapon as she demanded money. After obtaining an undisclosed amount of money, the suspect fled the bank in an unknown direction.

Officers learned that the suspect may have gotten into a vehicle driven by a male and located the vehicle abandoned at Southeast 9th Avenue and Salmon Street. Officers located the male and female suspects in the area and took them into custody and recovered money suspected to be obtained during the robbery.

38-year-old Kimberly Ann Bishop and 43-year-old Lee Croak were booked into the Multnomah County Jail on outstanding probation warrants. Federal Bank Robbery charges are pending.
