CASPER, Wyoming — A couple accused of robbing a Casper bank in January have also been charged in the hold ups of banks in Rock Springs and Laramie.

A federal grand jury indicted 38-year-old James P. Thain and 34-year-old Mindy N. Lawrence last week. The Casper Star-Tribune (http://bit.ly/P0u90zz) reports they're accused of robbing a U.S. Bank in Rock Springs on Jan. 21 and a U.S. Bank in Laramie on Jan. 27.

They were previously charged with robbing a Bank of the West in Casper on Jan. 29.

According to an FBI affidavit, Thain got about $3,000 from the Casper bank. He and Rankin were arrested after a chase. A customer at the bank's drive-through window saw the hold up. She followed the couple and told police where they were headed.
