TWIN FALLS -- A woman accused of helping her husband rob a Twin Falls bank this summer has been charged with two felonies and is being held in the local jail on a $500,000 bond.

Thirty-seven-year-old Linda Rowe was arraigned Monday on charges of aiding and abetting in robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery.

The Times-News reports that Lowe is accused of taking part in a July 9 heist at a Zions Bank branch with her husband, Jake Rowe.

Police say Jake Rowe entered the bank just before noon, showed a teller a handgun then made off with more than $1,500. Investigators say Rowe then sped away on dirt bike and hooked up with Linda Rowe, who was waiting in blue pickup truck.

They were arrested earlier this month in Carlin, Nev.
