First bank robbery in 15 years in Searcy AR

By

Our town had a little excitement Monday afternoon as one of our branch banks called in to report they'd been robbed.  We have gained a LOT of branch banks in Searcy and some are in quiet areas where a robber would likely not be seen except by the bank employees. 

The robber had his head pretty well covered but was captured on cameras.  It showed him entering with his face covered by a yellowish bandana and going directly behind the counter to the teller.  He brandished a gun during the robbery and left out the front door after getting the money, as reported by our Daily Citizen newspaper.

Investigating started immediately and by the next day, the robbers, two of them, were apprehended.  The investigation was led by Roger Pearson, the new director of the Criminal Investigation Division who recently graduated from the Federal Bureau of Investigation Academy. 

Good work, Searcy Police Department!  We'll have no Bonnie and Clyde behavior in Searcy, Arkansas!

Good to know they caught the guys.  Kinda scary for a small town; but hey - crime is everywhere - sad but true...
