PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh police say a teller was in on a bank robbery at a PNC Bank branch last month.

That’s why the robbery suspect, 45-year-old Shawn Stevens and the teller, 28-year-old Wade Jones, have both been arrested on robbery and conspiracy charges.

Police say Stevens went into the bank in the city’s Shadyside neighborhood and handed a note to Jones, the teller on duty, about 4 p.m. May 22. Police haven’t said how much money was taken, and didn’t immediately explain how they allegedly linked Jones to the plot.

Online court records don’t list attorneys for the men, whose charges were announced Friday.

Stevens was in custody and awaiting arraignment. Jones was arraigned on Wednesday and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing June 10.
