Three individuals with ties to El Dorado were federally indicted Tuesday for a December 2011 aggravated robbery of First Financial Bank, according to a release from Conner Eldridge, United States Attorney for the Western District of Arkansas.
Indicted include: Aaron M. Blaylock, 32, and Eric Johnson, 21, both of whom reported California addresses and are still being held at the Union County Jail, and Chelsea Marie Perdue, 19, of El Dorado, who was released from jail in February under an amended bond down from $1 million. The Sheriff’s Office Management System doesn’t list the amended bond.
A grand jury returned the indictment on charges that the three allegedly aided and abetted one another in an aggravated bank robbery. The release advises the three allegedly “assaulted and put in jeopardy the life of another person by the use of a firearm.”
The case is under investigation by the FBI, the El Dorado Police Department and the Union County Sheriff’s Office. All defendants face up to 25 years in prison and up to $250,000 in fines.
