COLONIAL HEIGHTS, Va. (WRIC)—A
husband and wife are now in jail after robbing a bank the afternoon of
Christmas Eve.

At 1:20 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 24,
Eric Shelton, 40, robbed the EVB Bank at 3012 Boulevard. He wore sunglasses, covered
the lower half of his face with a black scarf and demanded money. Shelton
escaped with an undisclosed amount of money, and was seen getting into a silver
Pontiac G6, which then headed west on Lakeview Avenue.

A police officer in the area spotted
Shelton's wife, 39-year-old Angela C. Shelton, driving a vehicle matching that
description just outside the city on Lakeview Avenue.

The Shelton's, of Prince George
County, were arrested for robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery. Both are
being held at Riverside Regional Jail with no bond.
