BOONE COUNTY - The Boone County Sheriff's Office said Saturday afternoon they called off the manhunt for additional suspects in the armed robbery of a Moberly bank Friday.
Sergeant James Perkins of the Boone County Sheriff's Department said they called off the manhunt late Friday night between 9 and 10 p.m. after searching a corn field south of Moberly for several hours in the heat.
