Two Queens men have been charged in connection to robbing bank and leading police on a car chase.

Two Queens men have been indicted in connection to the robbery of an upstate New York bank that was followed by a high-speed car chase in Westchester County, said the FBI.

According to the allegations, Joseph McCrimon, 38, entered a Wells Fargo Bank in Ardsley on March 29, demanded cash from the teller and threatened to detonate an explosive device if his demands were not met. After receiving approximately $10,000 in cash from the teller, McCrimon ran outside to a car where James Sherrod, 39, was waiting.

An Ardsley detective attempted to stop the duo, but they drove off, leading cops on a high speed chase. The two then fled on foot. Sherrod was caught by police in Yonkers while McCrimon was caught in Hastings.

The two were each charged with bank robbery, which carries a maximum of 20 years in prison, and conspiracy to commit bank robbery, which carries a maximum of five years.
