Question Two As Suspects in Bank Robbery FBI Captures Pair In Columbus, Ohio, Shopping Crowd COLUMBUS, Ohio (UP)—An ex- convict and a hazel-eyed blonde arrested Tuesday in a crowd of Christmas shoppers were questioned today about a. $50,104 bank holdup last Oct. 18 at Fort Wayne, Ir.d. Walter Splilt. 37, and Barbara Ann Jones, 20, were caught heavily armed as they left a suburban shopping center and started to enter their car. FBI agents and policemen who capiured them said they are suspected of operating an interstate bank robbery ring. They were suspected in a holdup at a southside branch of the Lincoln National Bank & Trust Co. at Fort Wayne in which two gunmen grabbed the cash and fled in a car believed driven by a third bandit. A known associate of the pair, Charles Marcum, was arrested in Cincinnati on Dec. 3, just 12 hours after a ?9.000 bank holdup in Louisville, Ky. Splitt and his girl friend also were to be questioned about a $16,000 bank holdup in Lexington, a $95,000 robbery last week in Louisville and smaller holdups in several Ohio cities tncl "jowns. Splitt served 12 years in Ohio Penitentiary after wounding two policemen at Wooster, Ohio. Agents and police grabbed the two suspects so quickly Tuesday they had no chance to reach for their guns. "We would have shot K out with you," 'the sullen girl told police. "We planned to if we ever got caught." Splitt said he was "glad it finished this way." At Indianapolis, authorities said the arrests apparently left only one of eight Indiana bank holdups this year unsolved, the r-fov. 18 $6,000 robbery of the Mount Summit branch of the Citizens Slate Bank of New Castle.
