Four Plead Guilty In Southside Bank Heist

A Tyler woman indicted in a November bank robbery pled guilty in federal court Thursday.

Eryka Templeton (20) faces up to 25 years in prison for robbing a Southside Bank branch inside Albertson's grocery store. Surveillance video shows Templeton approaching the bank moments before the robbery. Authorities now believe the bank's manager "Lavonda-Hammonds Price plotted the crime to cover up money she had embezzled from the branch. A Tyler man who knew about the embezzlement and robbery, also pled guilty in federal court. Michael Saunders could get up to three years in prison for misprision of a felony. Saunders admitted he took money from Price to purchase counterfeit cash. He alleges Hammonds wanted counterfeit dollars to replace the money she embezzled.

Two other accomplices--Deandra Lashun Butler and Jacqueline Ates pled guilty to bank theft. Vonda Hammonds-Price is expected to plea at a later date.
