Answer
Billie robbed the bank.

Reasoning
We know that each of them told the truth in one of the statements and lied in the other.

So according to Ashley, as one of the statements is false, it must have been either Drew or Billie.

If it was Drew, then Billie's statements would both be true, which isn't allowed.

Therefore, it was Billie, which agrees with Casey and Drew's statements.
