Woman due in court over robbery at First Place Bank

The investigation is pending, and a detective expects to make additional arrests.
WARREN -- Police have arrested a 29-year-old Howland Township woman on an aggravated robbery charge.
Detective Sgt. Al Bansky said Pamela Funk is expected to be in municipal court later today on the charge.
The charge stems from Funk's involvement with the Nov. 27, 2001, robbery of First Place Bank branch in Jamestown Village Plaza on Mahoning Avenue N.W., Bansky said.
Bansky said the investigation is pending, and he expects to make additional arrests. He declined to say what led to Funk's arrest.
"We have been working on this case since it happened; it's a good investigation," Bansky said.
Police reports say a man entered the bank around 9 a.m. Nov. 27 and handed a note to a teller demanding and undisclosed amount money.
The man indicated he had a weapon, but none was seen, police said.
The suspect, who also may have been wearing a fake beard, was described as a black man, about 30, 6 feet tall and weighing 170 pounds with moles or birthmarks on his cheeks.
Anyone with information is asked to call Warren police at (330) 841-2722.
