FISHERS. Ind. (WISH) - After a roughly two-hour long search for bank robbery suspects, FBI and Fishers police officials say five people were arrested in the armed robbery at Community Bank on Reynolds Drive, near 126th Street in Fishers.
Arrested were Deandre Armour, 37, Duryea Rogers, 26, Olivia Haiflich, 20, Tahita Burnett, 40, and another man who has not been identified.
Around the time the bank was opening, around 8 a.m., two men went up to an employee opening the door and violently forced their way in, police said.
What was taken from inside the bank was not immediately released.
Police officials said weapons were displayed during the robbery, but no shots were fired.
The men fled from the bank in the employee's vehicle. Two cars also left the area at the same time and police say they were involved in the robbery.
Fishers police initiated a traffic stop on the vehicles. People in two of the vehicles pulled over at the officer's request and were arrested.
The people in the third vehicle stopped and fled the area on foot.
Police engaged in a foot pursuit and one man was arrested across the street from the Baymont Suites Hotel, 9790 N. Northeast Blvd. in Fishers.
The second man fled inside the hotel and was found hiding in a closet.
Officials said Wednesday morning that schools and businesses locked down because of the search could resume normal activities.
Roche Diagnostics officials said they locked down as a result of the search for the Fishers bank robbery suspects. Security officials said it was a precaution recommended by law enforcement searching in the area.
They followed their emergency procedure and put their security guards and receptionists on alert. No one was able to come in or out of the building while they were locked down. They have about 700 employees in the building.
The Fishers Police Twitter account tweeted around 10:30 a.m. that schools and businesses locked down could go back to normal activities.
Witnesses in the area reacted to the search.
"You have your family inside, you don't know what to expect. Everything you see on the news and things, somebody could break in. You never know what's going to happen," says John Spinks, who witnessed the foot chase.
Police were still investigating the incident Wednesday afternoon.
Officials commented on the search, and agencies working together.
"I think this is an example of professional organizations working in close corporation to make sure the streets of Indianapolis are safe," says Bob Jones, FBI Special Agent in Charge Indianapolis. "This seems to be a larger, well organized group, a professional crew that seems to know what they're doing, at least seem to know what they were doing, prior to today."
Police dispatchers in Hancock County say two medical helicopters were called to the scene of a crash late Wednesday night.
SWAT members were called to the city's northwest side Wednesday night.
In the wake of tornadoes that ravaged towns like Kokomo, Hoosiers now have another concern.
