Florida couple arrested after ‘ghost mask’ crime spree that spanned 3 counties, officials say


A  Florida couple was arrested Monday in connection to an armed bank robbery earlier this year that was part of a crime spree spanning three counties, federal authorities said, adding that the suspects wore “ghosts masks.”

John Armstrong Jr., 30, and Tanya Legg, 43, were taken into custody at a gas station in North Fort Myers on Monday night, FOX4 reported.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida said in a news release that Armstrong, an unidentified associate, and Legg allegedly robbed a BB&T Bank in Altamonte Springs on Sept. 26 wearing masks. Armstrong and the unidentified man used guns to force bank employees to open the bank’s safe, from which they stole $22,000 in cash, according to the criminal complaints.
