CLOVERDALE, Ore. (AP) – A man and woman from the Salem area were arrested after police say they robbed a bank at gunpoint in Tillamook County and later got into a shootout with police.
    
Oregon State Police say the robbery was reported at a U.S. Bank in Cloverdale around 11:30 a.m. Thursday. Police say the suspects were driving away when officers arrived.
    
Police say after a short pursuit the suspect vehicle hit a police vehicle and that the woman and man were arrested after exchanging gunfire with police. The woman and man were taken to a hospital for evaluation from the crash.
    
Police say no one was injured in the shooting.
    
On Friday, the Oregon State Police identified the suspects at Matthew G. Buswell from Keizer/Salem and Cassandra Maughan of Keizer.

Maughan, 34, was booked for conspiracy to commit robbery.

The 36-year-old Buswell faces 6 separate charges: robbery, being a felon in possession of a gun, unlawful use of a gun, theft, menacing and tampering with evidence. 

Maughan was convicted of criminally negligent homicide while driving under the influence in 2012 in Marion County. 

They’re being held in the Tillamook County Jail.
