Police in Walker County looking for two persons of interest in bank robbery

CURRY, Ala. (WIAT) – Investigators in Walker County are asking for the public’s help.

They’re trying to track down two persons of interest in connection with a bank robbery and bomb threats.

Jasper Police and the Walker County Sheriff’s Office want to talk to Brandon Peake and Tamra Files.

They are believed to be driving a 2010 black Chevy Silverado.

Police say just after 8 a.m. on Friday morning, someone called in a bomb threat at Walker Baptist Medical Center.

They also claimed there was a bomb on one of the bridges along Highway 69.

At 3:30 that afternoon, the Traders and Farmers Bank in Curry was robbed.

Police say someone may have used the bomb threat to keep police busy while they held up the bank.
