Three men are now behind bars and one remains at large accused in a string of armed robberies. .

American National Bank, ENT Federal Credit Union and TCF Bank were all hit between late February and early May. Police say two of the suspects were caught after fleeing the scene and it was the pattern of these robberies that led them to two other suspects.

Kameo Jackson, 19, was arrested as he fled the scene after allegedly robbing TCF Bank, at 4330 N. Academy Blvd, on May 6 at gunpoint. He has also been charged for his involvement in three additional holdups of local banks.

Shawn Sample, 19, was also arrested and charged as an accessory in that robbery.

Corey Nicholas Elenga, 24, was arrested and charged with Aggravated Robbery.

Wesley Harrison Dunmire, 20, remains at large. He is 5’11” tall and 150 pounds, with brown hair and green eyes. Dunmire is known to always carry handguns, and has made statements indicating he will fight or shoot it out with police. If Dunmire is spotted, he should not be approached. He is wanted for armed bank robbery. Dunmire was seen in Colorado Springs as recently as the week of May 9. To see a photo of Dunmire, click on the Photos link above.

    Wow, awesome you guys put this story up, but don't tell anything. The man who robbed the TCF bank was released from custody last week.. Maybe you should do a little research before you write a story... Maybe you should investigate why he was released after being jailed for 3 weeks instead of telling the public he is still in jail. My friend works at the branch and was the one that was held at gunpoint. Police called her last week to let her know they released him...

    It's sad to see that Buckwheat, Spanky and the rest of the gang have taken the wrong path in life.
