CAMBRIA – Investigators are questioning two Lockport residents as possible suspects in a recent bank robbery, after they were pulled over Friday morning while police sought suspects from another bank holdup.

The two – a man and woman – were pulled over about 11 a.m. Friday in the 3900 block of Saunders Settlement Road after a Niagara County sheriff’s deputy noticed that the man matched the description of the bandit in a Lockport bank holdup that occurred a short time earlier. Deputies said the man had $2,600 in cash stuffed in three pockets of his pants.

Deputies said the man claimed the money was from his tax return.

Neither were identified by tellers of the recent bank holdup. However, police said the woman matches the description of a robber from an earlier holdup.

Further information was unavailable.
