Bank Robbers Tossed Loot From Car Window

YORK, Pa. (AP) – A Baltimore couple faces robbery charges after police say they robbed a central Pennsylvania bank then dumped the stolen loot out a window during a high-speed pursuit.

York Area Regional Police say 21-year-old Sade Long was behind the wheel as 30-year- old Eric Watkins threw money out the window of the getaway car as they fled toward Maryland on Interstate 83 Wednesday.

Some bills became stuck in the windshield wipers of a state police cruiser. Police searched the highway and recovered more money and a handgun allegedly used in the robbery.

The suspects were taken into custody at a roadblock and face charges including robbery, conspiracy and related charges. Bail was set at $250,000 for Watkins and $150,000 for Long. It was not clear if they had attorneys.

Police say the duo was involved in other robberies.
