Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers, with the assistance of Salem police, arrested a wanted female bank robbery suspect and the man driving the vehicle she was in on Interstate 5 in Salem Friday afternoon when they spotted the vehicle she was believed to be in following a reported Eugene-area bank robbery. The woman was the subject of a Thursday FBI Portland news release announcing a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of TAMMY LYNN HALL, age 42.
 
HALL was previously wanted for an April 30th robbery of the Bank of America in Clackamas. In addition to Friday's Eugene-area bank robbery, there were three other robberies committed in recent weeks by a woman matching HALL's description. HALL has only been charged in the April 30th robbery.
 
On May 14, 2010 at approximately 1:30 p.m. OSP troopers were told to be on the lookout for a white 2005 Nissan Altima displaying California license plates. The Nissan was reportedly associated with a man and woman who robbed the Chase Bank located at 1111 Valley River Drive in Eugene at noon. The vehicle was reportedly occupied by HALL and an unknown male driver. A few minutes later, an OSP trooper spotted the vehicle northbound from the Albany area.
 
At approximately 1:50 p.m. OSP troopers tried to stop the car northbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 257. The driver, later identified as SHAUN PARKE WILLIAMS, age 41, attempted to elude northbound in the Salem area at speeds up to 111 mph, avoiding one attempt by Salem police to spike the tires. After about two miles the car approached an area where OSP and Salem police were set up to deploy numerous spike strips. Traffic was slowing down because of the heavy police presence and WILLIAMS pulled to the left shoulder near milepost 259 and stopped.
 
OSP troopers and Salem police blocked northbound traffic while conducting a high risk stop. HALL and WILLIAMS were taken into custody without further incident.
 
FBI agents have been conducting followup investigations during afternoon which will continue into next week.
 
Both suspects were lodged in the Marion County Jail on the following current charges:
 
HALL
  • Federal warrant charging BANK ROBBERY
  • Unlawful Possession of Heroin
 
WILLIAMS (no confirmed address but last known one according to Oregon DMV record is in Cottage Grove)
  • Felony Attempt to Elude in a Vehicle
  • Reckless Driving
  • Recklessly Endangering Another Person
  • Unlawful Possession of Heroin
