Two men wanted in the May 8th robbery of an Oskaloosa credit union were captured this morning in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. Oskaloosa Police Chief Jake McGeee says the 23-year-old Justin Schrader and 32-year-old Aaron Michael Rafferty of Oskaloosa were captured by park rangers.
He says it just after midnight when they capture Schrader and Rafferty fled on foot. McGee says officers found Rafferty a few hours later, sleeping in a car. McGee says park rangers were investigating a hit-and-run crash involving the two men when they learned the duo was wanted in the robbery.
McGee says officers recovered a large sum of money along with the capture of the men. He says they are now awaiting some paperwork before the two are returned to Iowa. McGee says the F-B-I will prosecute the case and will get new federal warrants to bring the men back to Iowa. Schrader and Rafferty are being held in the Mammoth, Wyoming jail awaiting extradition.
