19-year-old convicted bank robber receives 15-year sentence

Teen pleaded guilty in March


Police weren’t able to take a statement from Ricard until November. He fled after the robbery and was found hiding out in a home in the 600 block of West Third Street in Mansfield, Ohio, by authorities there on Nov. 1.

Police tracked Reed to a home in the 2700 block of West 18th Street and arrested him. Police also found the black-and-blue Taurus, belonging to Rayford, in the driveway of the home.

According to the affidavit, officers found an envelope with $300 in Rayford’s possession, and the glove compartment of her car contained about half the money taken from the bank, several thousand dollars.

At first, Rayford reportedly told detectives that she had the car all day. When police told her the car was used after the robbery, she said she had loaned the car to Reed for about an hour, and that he gave her the $300. Rayford reportedly had worked at the branch and was fired several years ago after being questionably involved in a robbery that occurred while she worked there.

Jackson was taken into custody on Nov. 12 after an eyewitness who identified Reed and Ricard as the robbers also identified Jackson from a lineup as the driver of the second car.

In his upcoming trial, Jackson faces a Class B felony charge of robbery. Rayford was charged with Class D felony assisting a criminal as well as misdemeanor false informing.
