Bank Robber Caught 1 Minute After Crime
WENTZVILLE (AP) - Authorities say the man who robbed an eastern Missouri bank got away with it - for about one minute.
Prosecutors have charged 43-year-old Robert Lascelle of Warrenton with second-degree robbery for a crime that happened Wednesday in Wentzville.
Police say Lascelle approached a teller at the Bank of Old Monroe and demanded money - all of it. The teller gave the robber the money and pulled a bank alarm.
Lascelle ran away, but was stopped by officers responding to the alarm. Authorities recovered money, but didn't say how much.
Lascelle is jailed on $50,000 cash-only bond.
