Another suspect has been arrested in the Jan. 15 attempted robbery that reportedly began at Liberty Inn & Suites and affected Wells Fargo Bank on Gen. Screven Way. According to a Liberty County Sheriff’s Office report, Ladonna Yvette Frasier turned herself in and is being housed at the Liberty County Regional Jail.

Three other suspects already had been arrested in the incident, which began when three men reportedly gained entry into a couple’s hotel room. The men allegedly threatened the couple with brass knuckles and forced the male victim to the bank and demanded that he withdraw money. The third man reportedly stayed at the hotel with the woman.

The male victim notified the teller that he was being robbed, and bank employees stalled the transaction while triggering a silent alarm.

HPD and Liberty County Sheriff’s Officers responded to the bank and HPD arrested two of the suspects there. The third suspect was arrested two days later.

The female who reportedly was held hostage at the hotel later was found unharmed.
