Police have arrested a D’Iberville woman they say tried to hide and destroy evidence after Wednesday’s bank robbery in Ocean Springs.

Tearria Shava Wallace, 29, was arrested Friday on a charge of accessory after the fact to robbery.

Wallace’s arrest came after police identified Brittnei Michelle Farmer, 38, of Saucier, as the woman sought in the Hancock Bank holdup in Ocean Springs.

Wallace lives at The Estates of Juan de Cuevas on Gorenflo Road in D’Iberville.

Investigators believe Farmer was heading to Wallace’s apartment when police arrested Farmer in a traffic stop later Wednesday, D’Iberville police Capt. Marty Griffin said.

Interviews and evidence led to Wallace’s arrest, he said.

Griffin, citing the ongoing investigation, declined to say what evidence Wallace is accused of trying to destroy.

She was booked at the Harrison County jail, on a $250,000 bond set by Justice Court Judge Albert Fountain.
