Hubbard County Attorney Don Dearstyne requested a higher bail amount for the suspect in the Feb. 26 robbery of an Akeley bank, maintaining the man has a more troubled past than he revealed in court last week.


Dearstyne told District Judge Robert Tiffany the $75,000 unconditional bail or $25,000 conditional amount were insufficient to ensure public safety if Edward Joseph Lowen were to post them.
