Bank robbery suspect#039;s wife charged with complicity


Ky. - The wife of an Ashland-area man

accused of robbing a South Point bank has been arrested in connection to that holdup as well.

Sherry Webb, also known as Sherry Artrip, of Boyd County, Ky., was arrested Friday by Kentucky authorities and housed in the Boyd County Detention Center in Catlettsburg. She was charged with complicity to aggravated robbery.

"Based on our investigation, we feel it necessary to pursue criminal charges against her as well," Lawrence County Sheriff Tim Sexton said. "It is a possibility the investigation could lead to charges against another person as well. We are still following up on some things."

Her husband, Anthony Artrip, remains in the Volusia County, Fla. Jail. He was arrested Thursday of last week by the Ormond Beach Police Department in Florida after a bank robbery there that resulted in a city-wide car chase.

Artrip is jailed in Florida where he faces charges of armed robbery and awaits extradition back to Lawrence County on charges of aggravated robbery in connection with the June 3 holdup of the Oak Hill Bank branch in South Point.

Webb was expected to be brought to Lawrence County sometime Monday afternoon. She is one of two people charged with complicity in connection with the South Point robbery. Michael Myers, 27, also of Ashland, was arrested shortly after that incident and has been charged with complicity to aggravated robbery.
