CONYERS, Ga. – Two members of the Army National Guard who allegedly robbed a branch of Georgia’s Own Credit Union were arrested after a man and his wife saw them running from the branch with guns and a large bag, and chose to follow them.

According to police, the couple drove behind the armed robbers as they got into a car driven by a third man and then drove to a nearby warehouse, where they left the vehicle after turning down a dead-end street because they noticed they were being followed by the couple, police said.

One of the men arrested, Jemelle Francis, 25, was wearing his Army National Guard fatigues under his coveralls. Francis and another suspect, Menshack Nyepah, are stationed at nearby Fort Gillem. The third suspect has not been caught.
