* MUNCIE, Ind. (8/12/09)--Bond has been set at $300,000 for Stanley Dewayne Wills, 30, Muncie, Ind., who pleaded not guilty to robbery charges stemming from a May 27 holdup at Industria Centre FCU, in which more than $250,000 was stolen. Wills and another man, John D. Repass, 29, were formally charged July 23 in a Circuit Court with robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery, but authorities were unable to locate Wills until he showed up at a hearing Thursday. Repass was recently arrested in Utah, where he waived extradiction and is waiting to return to Indiana (The Star Press Aug. 7). He told authorities that he, Wills and Wills' girlfriend, Maranda Conley, 28, committed the robbery. On May 27, two men wearing disguises and armed with a handgun entered the credit union. They took the male employees to a back room and the female employees to the vault. They left in a car allegedly driven by Conley, 28 (The Star Press July 26) … * RALEIGH, N.C.
