Third bank robbery suspect arrested | Crime
BYRAM, MS (WLBT) - The third suspect wanted in connection to the robbery of the Copiah Bank in Byram was arrested Tuesday morning by the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force in Jackson.
The Byram Police Department had been searching for Rafeal Demond Bennett, 24, since Friday after he reportedly led police on a high-speed chase and manhunt in the Wynndale area of Hinds County. He had since been on the run and was arrested at a relative's home in Jackson Tuesday morning, according to a news release from the Byram Police Department.
Judge Dale Schwindaman set Bennett's bond at $500,000. He was transferred to the Hinds County Detention Center in Raymond.
Monday, bond was set at $500,000 for two suspects already arrested in connection to the robbery. Courtney Deshone Jones, 22, and Earnest Linwood Hinds, 23, were arrested Friday after the high-speed chase and three-hour manhunt in Hinds County.
