Traffic stop snags area men wanted for Tenn. bank robberies

Virginia State Police say a routine traffic stop led to the capture of two Tennessee bank robbery suspects.

Sgt. Michael Conroy says 27-year-old Terence Jaunte Crawley of Clinton, Md., and 24-year-old Johnathan Isaac Allen of Reston were arrested Monday afternoon.

Conroy says a missing front tag and a failure to signal prompted Trooper O.J. Lilly to stop a car occupied by the suspects on U.S. 11 in Wytheville. He says a search of the car turned up an undisclosed amount of cash, a small amount of marijuana and paraphernalia and five handguns.

The men were charged with being fugitives from justice from Marion County, Tenn., on federal bank robbery and kidnapping charges. The FBI is investigating the robbery of a Citizens Tri-County Bank in South Pittsburg, Tenn.
