Springfield Police Nab Bank Robbery Suspect; Money Recovered


Springfield police have arrested a man in connection with the Monday morning robbery of a westside bank.

 

Authorities say a man entered the United Community Bank branch on Bruns Lane around 10:30am and put a note on the counter, demanding money and threatening violence if the teller did not comply.  There were conflicting reports on whether the suspect displayed a gun or merely implied that he had one.  He escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash.

 

Police searching the area found a man matching the suspect description a short distance away, inside a nearby Walgreen's.  They also found the cash from the robbery and other items connected to the suspect stashed in the area.  39-year-old Wyman Allen is facing armed robbery and other charges.
