Evidence found at suspect's home ties him to another bank robbery

CRAWFORD CO., Ind. - The guy whose grinning mug was displayed from security camera video stills here yesterday probably underestimated the power of social networking in helping solve crime.

At approximately 1:35 this morning, Indiana State Police Detectives arrested Jason Elliott, 44 of Ramsey, Ind., in connection with the bank robbery that occurred at First Savings Bank in Marengo on Friday afternoon, August 9.

Indiana State Police Detectives received a tip from an unidentified individual who saw the Facebook post about the bank robbery in Marengo. The information received helped identify Elliott. Detectives were able to track down Elliott late last night at his residence located at 8380 Jill Circle NW, Ramsey. Detectives were able to recover some of the money that was allegedly stolen from First Savings Bank in Marengo. Further investigation also revealed Elliott allegedly committed the bank robbery at the Stock Yards Bank in Austin on July 19.

This is an on-going investigation.
