NEWARK, Del. (AP) - Newark Police have arrested two men in the robbery of a credit union.

Officers say the American Spirit Federal Credit Union was robbed Jan. 9 by a man with a bandanna covering his face. Police say a teller gave the man money, and he fled to a waiting car, which drove into Maryland.

Authorities say on Monday, Delaware State Police notified them that dye-covered money was being circulated at the Delaware Park casino in Wilmington.

Newark Police linked the money to two suspects and on Wednesday raided a house. Officers say two men were arrested, and evidence linking them to the robbery was seized.

Thirty-year-old William B. Baker and 43-year-old James Collins were charged with robbery and other offenses.
