Email News Alerts

The suspect in an Akeley branch bank robbery may have spent up to two hours casing the building before he pulled up to the front door, went in and robbed the bank at gunpoint Friday evening.


Authorities spent the weekend searching for the middle-aged man who took an undisclosed amount of money shortly before closing time.

The suspect, shown in bank surveillance photos released 24 hours after the heist, appeared calm as he handed a small gym bag over to the female teller.
