On Oct. 25, they took about $2,775 from Hometown Bank in Corbin.

And on Dec. 1, $3,270 was taken from the L&N Federal Credit Union in Williamsburg.

Count six charges the pair with with carrying a firearm in Whitley County. Count seven charges that Jason Fox alone carried a firearm in Whitley County.
