Two charged for Hancock County bank robbery

NEW CUMBERLAND – Two individuals are being charged in connection with a robbery this week of the New Cumberland branch of Hancock County Savings Bank.

According to information released today by the Hancock County Sheriff’s Department, a joint investigation between the sheriff’s department and the New Cumberland Police Department led to the issuing of warrants for Russell Frederick Culbreth, 34, and Neredia Jade Marie Ferrer, 19. Neither individual has a known address.

Culbreth will face charges for bank robbery, which comes with a potential sentence of 10 to 20 years, according to officials. He previously has been convicted of robbery charges in South Carolina.

Ferrer will face charges of being an accessory to bank robbery.

Police officials stated the two are believed to be driving a 1999 black, two-door Pontiac Grand Am with West Virginia license plate: 3TF250 with a faded “bra” – a stretchy type of vinyl, usually black, that attaches to the front of a vehicle, – and a loud exhaust.
