Three people are behind bars charged with robbing the Grand Bank in the Friendly City on Thursday.

William Gregory Davis, 28, of Saucier and Lacey Ray Depierne, 35, of Gulfport, were arrested an hour after the downtown robbery which took place at noon.

Petal Police say their investigation led to John W. Finney, 44, of Petal. He was arrested at his home on Robertson Road on Friday. Officials say they believe Finney was the suspect who walked into the bank and handed a note to the teller demanding money.

Authorities say they recovered about a third of the money in Finney's home. The rest of the money was found in the trunk of the car driven by Davis and Depierne.
