Email News Alerts

A Hubbard County man has been convicted in federal court of robbing an Akeley branch bank in February.

Edward Joseph Lowen's case was filed in U.S. District Court in Minnesota this spring because the federal penalties are stiffer for bank robbery. He faced a single count of bank robbery. A grand jury indicted him April 13. That resulted in the dismissal of the state charges he was facing.


Lowen, 54, faces a maximum of 20 years in prison.
