UPDATE: “Pink Lady Bandit” and accomplice captured by the FBI after a spree of bank robberies from PA to NC

The “Pink Lady Bandit” has been captured after robbing four banks along the East Coast, in three different states. Two of these banks were in N.C. The pink lady bandit didn’t act alone, her male accomplice is also in custody. So much for a modern day Bonnie & Clyde.

(AYDEN,NC)- UPDATE 7/29/19 08:47PM: The same unidentified suspect from the original story last week where one bank robbery occurred in Ayden, NC at Southern Bank, unfolded a bigger picture into an FBI investigation.

The “Pink Lady Bandit” is believed to have robbed four different banks along the East Coast, in three states, two of which were in N.C.

In each individual robbery, there were similar characteristics. The female suspect showed the teller a note demanding money, and in two specified cases she was carrying a distinctive style of a pink handbag. The pink handbag lead to her being dubbed as the “Pink Lady Bandit”. Other physical characteristics were yoga style pants, tank tops, big dark sunglasses, and a grayish colored baseball cap.

In each case, the suspect showed the teller a note that demanded money. She has since been dubbed the nickname, “Pink Lady Bandit” because in at least two of the robberies she carried a very distinctive pink handbag.

The Pink Lady Bandit didn’t act alone and her “Clyde” – accomplice, has also been arrested in the series of robberies. FBI- Charlotte, Public Affairs Specialist, Shelley Lynch issued the following in a release on the FBI website:

“The Charlotte Division of the FBI arrested Circe Baez (DOB August 9, 1983) and Alexis Morales (DOB May 15, 1981) on July 28, 2019, in connection with at least four bank robberies along the East Coast. The bank robberies occurred at the following locations:

  • Orrstown Bank, 1 Giant Lane, Carlisle, Pennsylvania, on July 20, 2019
  • M&T Bank, 19511 Camelot Drive, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, on July 23, 2019
  • Southern Bank, 236 West 3rd Street in Ayden, North Carolina, on July 24, 2019
  • BB&T, 8 Raleigh Street in Hamlet, North Carolina, on July 26, 2019

Evidence gathered during the course of the investigation by the FBI, Greenville Police Department, the Ayden Police Department, Hamlet Police Department, Carlisle Police Department, and the Delaware State Police led agents and task force officers to identify Circe Baez as the woman who robbed at least four banks. Agents and officers uncovered additional evidence after the robbery in Hamlet, North Carolina, to identify Morales as an accomplice to the crimes.

On Sunday, July 28, 2019, investigators located Baez and Morales at the Charlotte Speedway Inn & Suites located at 1408 West Sugar Creek Road in Charlotte, North Carolina. Members of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department Violent Criminal Apprehension Team took the suspects into custody without incident. They were transported to Pitt County where they went before a local magistrate judge and were booked into the Pitt County Detention Center. The suspects are currently being held at the Pitt County Detention Center in Greenville, North Carolina, on $4 million bond each. At this time, they are charged in connection with the bank robberies in Ayden and Hamlet, North Carolina. Specific details on the individual charges they face can be found at the Pitt County Detention Center website. 

Baez is also currently charged by the Carlisle Police Department. Both suspects are likely facing additional charges from other state agencies and perhaps federal charges in connection to the cases. The investigation is ongoing.

The following agencies partnered in this investigation: FBI Charlotte, Delaware State Police, Carlisle Police Department, Ayden Police Department, Hamlet Police Department, Greenville Police Department, North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, FBI Baltimore, and FBI Philadelphia.”

The Pink Lady Bandit and her side kick have traded in the pink purse for one pillow case, orange jump suits and hotel suites on the run for jail cells.

UPDATE-SUSPECT CAPTURED: Saundra Wagner for the murder of James Pannoni and cause of death released

UPDATE:

On April 9, 2019 Onslow County Sheriff’s Office released information that James Pannoni was found deceased at his residence, 101 Chasity Way in Hubert. Mr. Pannoni was the victim of a homicide and autopsy results concluded that the victims cause of death was a result of being stabbed.

During the late evening hours of April 7, 2019, Onslow County Sheriff’s Office Deputies were requested to conduct a welfare check on James Pannoni, at 101 Chasity Way. The request came from the Truro Police Department in Massachusetts where Pannoni’s daughter, Kellianne had reported her father missing. Deputies responded to the Chasity Lane residence and found no one home, no vehicles in the driveway and nothing appeared to be out of place. Later that evening, a uniform patrol deputy found James Pannoni’s vehicle abandoned near 147 Hubert Blvd with the driver’s side window rolled down and the keys in the ignition. The vehicle, a tan 2000 Toyota Tundra was parked in between two abandoned trailers near the Patriot Place Mobile Home Park.

The investigation quickly identified Saundra Evon Wagner as the primary suspect in this incident. Pannoni and Wagner had been involved in a domestic type relationship in months prior to this incident. Detectives attempted to interview Wagner, but Wagner fled the area before deputies could locate her. Sheriff’s detectives continued to investigate the incident and were able to obtain warrants charging Wagner with one Open Count of Murder in the death of Pannoni.

On April 13, 2019, Sheriff’s deputies received information that Wagner was in Dothan, Alabama at a local shopping center. Deputies contacted Dothan Police and requested their assistance in attempting to locate Wagner. Dothan Police arrived at the location and observed Wagner driving through the parking lot. Officers attempted to stop Wagner, but a short car chase ensued with Wagner wrecking her vehicle and she was apprehended. Wagner was transported to a local medical center with what is now reported from OCSO as non-life-threatening injuries.

Originally, Dothan PD said in a live press conference that live saving measures were given for moderate injuries and the suspect was transported for medical treatment.

Wagner is facing charges in Alabama related to the car chase in addition to being extradited to Onslow County upon her release. A schedule for Wagner’s extradition is pending.

Detectives have established a motive for the crime but this and other details of the investigation will not be released pending the ongoing investigation and the upcoming court proceedings.

In addition to the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office, the Onslow County District Attorney’s Office, North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation and Dothan Police Department assisted with this investigation.

The Sheriff’s Office is still asking anyone with knowledge of Mr. Pannoni’s association with Wagner to contact the Sheriff’s Office Detective Division.
