Coleman’s husband, Gary Leland Coleman, 49, was arrested Jan. 12 in San Antonio, Texas, where he had fled after the New Bloomfield bank robbery.

Callaway County Sheriff Dennis Crane said the use of photos from the bank’s security cameras by the news media last October led to identification of Coleman. A warrant for Coleman’s arrest was issued on Oct. 10, 2012, by the Callaway County Sheriff’s Office, four days after the robbery on Oct. 6.

Coleman was arrested Jan. 12 by San Antonio law enforcement officers on the Callaway County arrest warrant.

Coleman’s wife Terry was arrested Thursday by Callaway County deputies on a Cole County probation violation warrant. She also was arrested on a felony charge of second degree armed robbery of Bank Star One in New Bloomfield on Oct. 6, 2012.

Her bond was set at $31,575. She posted the bond and was released from Callaway County Jail.

Her husband’s bond was set at $30,000 and he is still in Callaway County Jail based on his Jan. 12 arrest on the bank robbery charge.
