Deputies arrest man in robbery of Town 'N Country credit union

TOWN 'N COUNTRY — Hillsborough sheriff's deputies arrested a man Tuesday in connection with a robbery at a credit union a week earlier in Town 'N Country.

Christopher A. Gilbert, 36, faces a charge of strong arm robbery. Deputies said he is the man who walked into a Grow Financial Credit Union at 8314 Sheldon Road the morning of July 22 and passed a demand note to a teller before fleeing with cash.

Gilbert was arrested Tuesday morning at his home at 8809 Poe Drive, which is less than a mile from the credit union. He was held in the Hillsborough County Jail without bail.

After detectives searched his home, four other people were arrested on various drug charges. They were: Sherry Schmoyer, 50; Richard Chastain, 57; Kelly Bonsall, 40; and Mark Clem Sr., 47.
