A couple wanted for robbing a northwest Indiana bank Saturday may be in the Chicago area with their young children, according to the FBI. Jeremiah Ellis and Ashley Patterson, of the 4800 block of Homerlee Avenue in East Chicago, were named in warrants issued in federal court in the Northern District of Indiana on Thursday, a statement from the FBI said. Both had handguns when they entered the First Merchants Bank at 4740 Indianapolis Boulevard in East Chicago, Ind., according to a federal criminal complaint. Ellis went to the counter to get cash drawers while Patterson held the bank customers and a security guard at gunpoint, the complaint alleges.
