Three Baltimore men have been arrested for an armed bank robbery in Manchester Township, York County last year.

Erik Alexander Clark, 19; Markeyss V. Gilbert, 20; and Demetrius Lavon Griffin, 22, each face counts of robbery, criminal conspiracy, and receiving stolen property, according to Northern York County Regional police.

Gilbert and Clark were being held at the York County Prison. Griffin was being held at the Baltimore City Detention Center.

Police previously reported that three masked robbers had guns drawn when they went into the Fulton Bank at 3183 Susquehanna Trail and demanded cash from the tellers on October 27, 2011.

The robbers had jumped out of a small car that stopped in front of the bank and fled with the cash in the same car, police said.

Witnesses followed the car south on Route 30 and were able to get the license plate number. The car was later found abandoned in York, police said.

Police said additional arrests in the robbery are pending.
