A St. Louis man and a Georgia man were charged Saturday in connection with the robbery of an Affton bank Friday morning.

Prosecutors charged Javion D. Marshall, 18, of the 3100 block of Texas Avenue in St. Louis, and Shannon C. Bolden, 26, of Decatur, Ga., each with first-degree robbery and armed criminal action.

Both men are being held on a $100,000 cash-only bond, police said.

Police responded about 9:55 a.m. Friday to a call of a bank robbery at the Citizen’s National Bank, located at 9111 MacKenzie Road. A man entered the bank, displayed a black handgun and demanded money, police said. The suspect left the bank with an undetermined amount of currency. No one was injured, police said.

The suspect got into a white four-door sedan with Georgia state license plates. Police believe a dye pack activated inside the vehicle.

Authorities obtained information that identified Marshall as the suspect that entered the bank and Bolden as the vehicle driver. An investigation led detectives to Texas Avenue, where county detectives and city police officers took the men into custody, found the vehicle used and recovered some of the stolen currency.
