Moore Robbery Suspects Arrested in Norman

OKLAHOMA CITY – DUNCAN ERIC HERRON, II, 31, and REGENEA CAROL BERRY, 30, both of Norman, have been arrested for robbing IBC Bank in Moore, announced First Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert J. Troester.

According to an affidavit in support of a criminal complaint filed on May 20, 2019, a man and a woman wearing masks and black clothing entered the IBC Bank on Northeast 12th Street in Moore at approximately 12:39 p.m. on May 14, 2019.  The man is alleged to have racked the slide of a pistol he was carrying and demanded that the three employees in the bank get on the floor and give him money.  The robbers allegedly left a few minutes later in a maroon sport utility vehicle.

According to the complaint, law enforcement reviewed video surveillance from several locations and conducted further investigation to determine that Herron and Berry were likely suspects.  During the execution of a search warrant on May 18, law enforcement recovered cash from various locations inside the suspects’ Norman residence, including "bait bills" the robbers took from IBC Bank.

Both Herron and Berry were arrested on May 18 and made their initial appearances on May 20 before U.S. Magistrate Judge Bernard M. Jones.  If found guilty of bank robbery, each defendant faces a maximum potential penalty of twenty years in prison, three years of supervised release, a fine of $250,000, and mandatory restitution.

This case is a result of an investigation by the FBI Oklahoma City Division and the Moore Police Department, with assistance from the Norman Police Department.  Assistant U.S. Attorneys Mary E. Walters, Wilson McGarry, and David McCrary are prosecuting the case.

The public is reminded that these charges are merely allegations and that Herron and Berry are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.  Reference is made to public filings for more information.
