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.
According to the affidavit, Rayford had worked at the branch and was fired several years ago after being questionably involved in a robbery that occurred while she worked there.
Mansfield, Ohio, is the county seat of Richland County, and is located about 60 miles northeast of Columbus, Ohio.
