GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Court papers show a retired postal worker from Texas is accused of threatening to shoot a Gulfport bank teller in the face in what officials believe to be the last of a mother-daughter crime spree at four banks in three states.

The Sun Herald reports 57-year-old Evie Mearlene Herrin and her daughter, 30-year-old Amelia Darci Crew, have been indicted on a federal charge of armed bank robbery in the March 26 holdup in Gulfport, Miss. They also are held on warrants from Texas and Louisiana.

They had been sharing an apartment in Cleveland, Texas.

The women are suspected in similar holdups Feb. 13 at Iberia Bank in Kinder, La., Feb. 29 at Citizens National Bank in Henderson, Texas, and March 15 at MidSouth Bank in Sulphur, La.
