Elko, Nevada ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) - Twin Falls Police said they've caught a husband–wife team that robbed the Zions Bank back in July.

Police said after investigating the robbery, they identified Linda and Jake Rowe as suspects. The pair lives in Carlin, Nevada.

Staff Sgt. John Wilson said two detectives went to work with the Carlin City Police Department on getting the warrant served. On Wednesday, officers arrested Linda. However, Jake was in a vehicle pursuit with local authorities in Nevada for a number of hours. Officer Wilson said the pursuit ended in the suspect being shot.

Jake faces charges in Nevada on a previous arrest from last April and now new charges. He'll also face charges in Idaho. He was life flighted to Boise and is in the hospital.

At this point, prosecutors haven't decided whether Jake will face charges in Idaho or Nevada first.

Both Jake and Linda are charged with conspiracy to commit bank robbery and bank robbery. Jake also has a weapons enhancement charge due to using a handgun.
