Pair charged in Creedmoor bank robberies

Posted April 13, 2011

— Creedmoor police arrested a man Wednesday, who they say robbed the same bank on two separate occasions in November, and a woman who they believe drove his getaway car.

Bobby Leon Harris, 29, of 2122 Westbourne Drive in Creedmoor, was charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, larceny from a person and two counts of possession of stolen goods.

Crystal Marie Patterson, 28, of 1590 Goss Road in Creedmoor, was charged with accessory after the fact.

Police say Harris passed a note to the teller at the RBC Centura Bank, 608 Main St., on Nov. 18 and escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash. On Nov. 24, police say, the pair robbed again.

Both were in the Granville County jail Wednesday. Harris' bond was set at $75,000 and Patterson's was set at $15,000.

    Glad they caught them. Creedmoor is typically a pretty peaceful place.

    Do bank robbers have to pay back the money they stole?

    I laughed SO hard at her shirt in the mugshot... "I'm not mean, I just don't like you." Classy.

    Two losers.

    Why is she only charged with accessory after the fact, when the article states the "pair struck again". I'm sure she knew after the first time what he was doing, and she's dumb enough to stick around for a second robbery??? Come on............
