BALDWIN COUNTY, Ala. (WKRG) — Two suspects tied to a string of “Bank Jugging” thefts in Baldwin County are behind bars.
The Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office identified Isaiah Satterfield, 25, and Bakaria Fisher, 25, both from Houston, Texas as suspects in two thefts in Foley and one in Spanish Fort.
Security cameras captured the latest theft in Foley. “It was just in a matter of seconds. They pulled up punched the window, a glass punch to the window, jumped in, got the money, jumped back in the car and they were gone,” says Capt. Clint Cadenhead with the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office.
The crime captured on the convenience store cameras started much earlier in the day according to Cadenhead at a Foley Bank where he says Satterfield and Fisher waited for the victim to withdraw four thousand dollars and then followed him. When he went inside the store they made their move. It’s called “Bank Jugging”.
“Initially they are sitting at the banks and waiting for people to go in and make a withdrawal and come out and follow them to another destination,” says Cadenhead.
The rental car the pair used, with reportedly stolen and homemade license plates, led to a traffic stop and the pair’s arrest near Pensacola. The money stolen at the convenience store was recovered and returned.
Deputies said Satterfield and Fisher have active warrants for unlawful breaking and entering a motor vehicle and theft. The Foley Police Department has active warrants for similar crimes that happened on July 15.
The two men are currently being held in the Escambia County Jail in Florida and will be extradited back to Baldwin County.
On July 19, Spanish Fort Police investigated a similar car break-in. The victim, in that case, told officials that thousands of dollars in cash was stolen.
