The F-B-I is now looking into the bank robbery in western Iowa’s Shelby County. According to the F-B-I, at about 3:25 p.m. Thursday, a white male wearing a hat and sunglasses walked into the Elk Horn branch of the Shelby County State Bank, and demanded money. The individual fled on foot, then jumped into two-tone Chevrolet El Camino that was driven by a white female. Following an extensive search by at least four area law enforcement agencies, an Iowa State Patrol Trooper cornered their vehicle on a dead-end road in Cass County and they surrendered without incident. The unidentified pair are currently being held in the Pottawattamie County Jail and are expected to be charged in federal court sometime today. Shelby County Sheriff Gene Cavanaugh says all the money, about 36-hundred dollars, was recovered during a search of the vehicle. There was no trace of a weapon, though. The suspects told the sheriff the “gun” was fake and had been thrown out the window after the heist.
