2 people suspected of robbing same bank twice arrested

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents have seized clothing, cash and receipts from a man and woman who are suspected of robbing the same Wichita bank twice.

The Wichita Eagle reports that documents from a pair of search warrants show that the items were seized from a home and vehicle.  The warrants were issued after 28-year-old Stephanie Steele and 32-year-old Joshua Coster were arrested by Wichita police on suspicion of aggravated robbery.

Police say they were working together to rob the bank on September 16th and October 16th.  No one was hurt in either robbery.

An affidavit detailing the probable cause for the search says the pair was identified through a tip the day after the second robbery.

They remain jailed in Sedgwick County on $100,000 bail.  No federal charges have been filed.
