Authorities arrested 62-year-old James Edward Peacock and 22-year-old David Aaron Johnson Thursday. James Glen Horton was already jailed on an unrelated charge. All three are facing aggravated robbery charges.

Two men entered the Plains Bell Federal Credit Union the morning of October 19, 2005 and left with almost $16,000. But investigators say it's what they left behind before and after the robbery that led them to the arrests.

Investigators believe two men captured on surveillance are Johnson and Horton. They suspect Johnson held up the teller with a gun while Horton told another teller to take him to the vault. Court documents show almost $16,000 was stolen.

Lubbock Police found a maroon 1984 Pontiac Grand Am abandoned in the alley behind the bank. A confidential informant told the FBI, Horton stole the car to use during the robbery. The car was reported stolen October 12th.

This same informant led authorities to a third suspect, Peacock. Motel records confirm Peacock checked into a Lubbock motel room on October 12th, just one week before the October 19th robbery. The informant claims Peacock's intention was to conduct surveillance on the Alliance Federal Credit Union. Peacock checked out of the motel October 14th, only to check back in the day before the robbery and checked out less than 24 hours later after the Plains Bell Federal Credit Union was robbed.

Both Peacock and Johnson are expected to make an appearance in an Amarillo federal court on Friday. Horton should make his appearance soon.
