UPDATED: Arrest made in Akeley bank robbery; $2,525 cash still missing
A Park Rapids area man was arrested Wednesday night in connection with the robbery of an Akeley branch bank less than a week ago.
Edward Joseph Lowen, 53, was taken into custody Wednesday night about 8:30 p.m., Sheriff Frank Homer said. He was at his residence at the time.
The $2,525 taken, however, was not recovered, said Homer.
"There's still a lot of follow-up that need to be done," he said. "You want to tie up loose ends."
