GRANDVIEW, TX -- A North Texas father and daughter have been accused of bank robbery and leading police on a chase with speeds reaching 150 mph.

Johnson County jail records show 41-year-old Michael Bailey and 19-year-old Megan Bailey were being held Friday on aggravated robbery counts.

He's also charged with evading arrest for allegedly driving the getaway car after Thursday's holdup in Grandview, 30 miles south of Fort Worth.

Grandview police Sgt. Curran Massey says investigators believe Michael Bailey had a gun and robbed the bank. His daughter stayed in the car. Massey says the car crashed after speeds of 150 mph and into oncoming traffic.

Investigators recovered about $12,000 from the vehicle.

The father's bond was $500,000. His daughter's bond was $25,000. Jail records didn't immediately list attorneys to speak for them.
