CAPE CORAL, Fla. -- Cape Coral Police Department detectives have made arrests in the Busey Bank robbery from October 31st. 

Quickly after the robbery at Busey Bank at 2524 Del Prado Boulevard South on October 31, 2016, CCPD detectives were able to develop Christian Miller, 19, and an underage female, as suspects in the case.

Police have also accused the underage female of robbing an O'Reilly Auto parts store last Friday.

According to the report, she entered the store pointing a black firearm at two store employees demanding cash from the registers.  After reiterating that “This is for real, yo,” the employees emptied the registers, at which point the female fled on foot on San Carlos Boulevard in an unknown direction.

The female was a listed runaway out of Ohio, and Miller had an active warrant for interfering with custody (running away with the female). U.S. Marshals located the pair in Lake City, Florida, and Columbia County served warrants written by Cape Coral detectives on both of the suspects. Both are facing robbery charges.
