RPSO: another arrest made in Hineston bank robbery

Posted: Updated:

HINESTON, La. (KALB News Channel 5) – A Texas woman has been arrested in connection to a November bank robbery in Hineston.

According to the Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office, Lisa Faye Thompson Elie, 39, of Garland, Texas, was arrested.  Elie is formerly from Alexandria. She is charged with one count of accessory after the fact and one count of obstruction of justice.

On November 8, 2013, the Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office responded to an armed robbery at the Hineston branch of Sabine State Bank.   According to witnesses, armed gunmen entered unannounced and at gunpoint robbed the bank of an undisclosed amount of money. 

RPSO tells us that through the investigation, detectives developed Cedric Deshon Sanders, Corey Cortez Rosenthal and his brother Tyles Tyrone Rosenthal as suspects.  Detectives were able to establish sufficient probable cause and warrants were granted for their arrest by a 9th Judicial Judge in reference to a variety of crimes associated with the armed robbery. 

Detectives developed a fourth suspect, Elie. Elie, who is Corey Cortez Rosenthal's girlfriend, was contacted by Detectives after they learned she owned a 2013 Chevy Impala, which witnesses told RPSO they saw the suspects fleeing the bank in.  Upon executing a search warrant on Elie's vehicle, Detectives discovered additional evidence linking both her and the vehicle to the robbery. 

According to RPSO, Elie was arrested on November 28 and booked into the Rapides Parish Detention Center.

Elie is currently being detained at the detention center in lieu of a $1,000,000.00 bond.  Detectives state their investigation is still ongoing and additional arrests are possible.
