A man jailed earlier this month on charges of robbing a bank in Hollywood was charged Wednesday with the holdup of a Harbor View Road bank.

Rashad Edward Harley, 33, of 1097 Harbor View Road, resides just down the road from First Federal Bank at 1011 Harbor View Road, which was robbed Nov. 14. He was charged Wednesday by Charleston police with entering a bank with the intent to steal, in connection with that holdup.

Earlier this month, Harley was one of two suspects the Charleston County Sheriff's Office jailed in connection with the Nov. 28 robbery of First Citizens Bank on S.C. Highway 162 in Hollywood. Harley and Jered Akil Gilliard, 25, of Avon Court, were charged by deputies with bank robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.

Both are being held in the Charleston County Detention Center.

In the Hollywood holdup, two men jumped the bank's counter and fled with cash, according to deputies. Detectives later identified Jessica Nicole Wigfall, 21, of Turkey Hill on Johns Island as the driver of a getaway car. She told investigators she dropped off the men near the bank and waited for their return in exchange for about $50, the sheriff's office said. She is charged with accessory after the fact of bank robbery.

On Harbor View Road, a lone robber reportedly entered the bank about 10 a.m. He didn't present a weapon but indicated he was armed, and left with an undetermined amount of money, police spokesman Charles Francis said.
