No one was injured and an undisclosed amount of money was taken during an armed bank robbery in southeast Nebraska this weekend.
Richardson County Sheriff Don Pounds says two people were working at the American National Bank when the robber, described as a white male in his 40’s entered the bank about 11:15am Saturday.
The man was armed with a handgun. He was dressed in all black clothing and wore a mask. The amount of money the robber took has not been reported.
Sheriff Pounds added no one was able to see any type of getaway vehicle.
American National Bank President Adrian Breen says the staff did everything they were supposed to do and he is thankful no one got hurt.
The Richardson County Sheriff’s Office was notified by security equipment at the bank of the robbery at 11:13am. The Sheriff’s Office confirmed a short time later that a robbery had occurred.
The Sheriff’s Office responded to the call and the FBI was notified immediately. All bank robbery cases fall under the jurisdiction of the FBI.
