Police have arrested a woman suspected of robbing both a pharmacy on June 23rd and a bank on Wednesday, as well as a man connected with the bank robbery.
22-year-old Adrienne Latrice Tottress is accused of robbing the Bank of Oklahoma branch in the 4500 block of South 33rd West Avenue Wednesday morning, as well as the Med-X in the 1700 block of Utica Square a week ago Saturday.
According to the arrest report, Tottress allegedly entered the Med-X on June 23rd, approached the pharmacy counter in the rear of the store, threatened an employee with a semi-automatic handgun, and demanded both prescription medications and money from the register. She was reportedly given OxyContin and either Xanax or Nucynta (Tapentadol), as well as a small amount of money. She reportedly had calamine lotion on her face.
The arrest report also alleges that Tottress entered the Bank of Oklahoma with a handgun, handed a note to a teller demanding money, ran out the door, and left the scene in a black Nissan pickup truck that was later recovered at another Med-X store in the 4400 block of Southwest Boulevard.
Tottress's fiancée, 23-year-old Joseph "Jose" Jones, is accused of assisting Tottress with the bank robbery by holding the door open with a glove and a rag and by driving the getaway truck.
Tottress was stopped in the 1600 block of South Memorial Drive at 4:00 p.m. Friday and was booked just before 10:30 p.m. Friday.
Jones was reportedly taken to the TPD Detective Division after a consented search of his residence in the 6500 block of South 33rd West Avenue and was booked just before 10:30 p.m. Friday.
Police recovered the pills and flare gun from the Med-X robbery, as well as the cash, from the residence on South 33rd West Avenue.
Two witnesses positively identified Jones as a suspect in the Bank of Oklahoma robbery.
Tottress has been charged with two felony counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon. Her bond was set at $100,000.
Jones has been charged with one felony count of robbery with a dangerous weapon. His bond was set at $50,000.
