Two men and two women were taken into custody in Flagstaff Saturday for investigation of a series of bank robberies including the attempted heists Thursday in Cottonwood and Camp Verde.

The men have now been booked and the women released.

Anthony James Kyyitan, 28, a transient, formerly of the Gila River reservation, is listed as a suspect in five attempted or successful bank robberies in Prescott Valley, Cottonwood, Camp Verde Arizona City and Coolidge.

Kyyitan is charged by the Yavapai County Attorney with one count of robbery and one count of theft at the Prescott Valley branch of the Arizona State Credit Union on Pav Way Tuesday afternoon. Thursday he is charged with attempted robbery at Wells Fargo branches in Cottonwood and, 45 minutes later, in Camp Verde. In both Verde Valley cases, he fled without any money.

Louis Wayne Susunkewa, 28, was arrested on a felony warrant for probation violation.

Both were booked into the Coconino County Jail.

Two women were considered investigative leads. One is Noreen Onsae, 32, who now lives in Camp Verde and is formerly of the Hopi Reservation at Second Mesa. She was released, but the Yavapai County Attorney is reviewing possible charges.

Keri Ann Susunkewa, 28, of Second Mesa was released and determined to have no involvement.

The Cottonwood Police had already distributed a vehicle and partial license description. And the case broke open in Camp Verde, when a Marshal's detective investigated "property" found by the housekeeping staff in one of the rooms. A handgun was found in the trash and evidence from the Prescott Valley Credit Union robbery was located in a room.

Cottonwood Lt. Jack Stapleton says all agencies contributed to uncovering the names of the suspects. In addition to Prescott Valley, Cottonwood and Camp Verde, the Yavapai-Apache PD, Flagstaff PD and FBI were involved in the investigation.
