— Felony bail jumping charges were issued Wednesday against two people authorities say were involved in an armed bank robbery in Bloomfield Township.

Shelby L. Kaelber, 21, and David C. Allen II, 24, both of Kenosha, were taken into custody by Kenosha County authorities for violating terms of the bonds they signed to remain free while the case is pending. Kaelber has a jury trial set for later this month. Both are now in Kenosha County jail and are expected to appear today in Walworth County Court on the bail jumping charges.


Kaelberg and Allen were in a mutual relationship at the time of the bank robbery and were not supposed to live together as a condition of bail. But Kenosha County authorities found they were cohabitating, a Walworth County District Attorney's Office spokesman said.


Allen is accused of driving the getaway car and Kaelber with supplying the BB gun used to rob the First Bank Center on Aug. 31 in Bloomfield Township. The robber was identified as Jeremiah Ward, 23, of Genoa City.


The three are charged with armed robbery.
