Jamie Marie Parm was charged with aggravated robbery and theft of property Wednesday in connection with the June 21 robbery of the Oak Street Centennial Bank branch, 20th Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney Marcus Vaden said.
Parm is currently incarcerated at the Faulkner County Detention Center on theft by receiving charges. Bond is set at $37,500.
According to Vaden, Parm is considered an alleged accomplice to accused bank robber Eric Kennedy, who was arrested June 23 on charges of aggravated assault, theft of property, terroristic threatening and theft by receiving.
According to the robbery reports, a tall white male in his late 20s or early 30s entered the bank branch a little after 4 p.m., handed the teller a note claiming to have a weapon and demanded cash. Although a weapon was never seen, the teller gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of money. The suspect then left the bank, heading west on foot. An aggravated robbery conviction could warrant 10 to 40 years or up to life in prison, while a conviction on the theft of property charge could result in three to 10 years in the Arkansas Department of Correction, Vaden said.
