Sanborn bank robbed

Suspect apprehended shortly after incident occurred

A Sanborn man is behind bars after allegedly robbing Sanborn Savings Bank on Monday.

According to the O'Brien County Sheriff's Office, a 911 call was received at 1:02 p.m. reporting a robbery at the bank. Bank officials reported a black male entered the building and handed a teller a note. The note said that this was a robbery and demanded cash.

No weapons were displayed or referenced during the robbery. An undetermined amount of cash was taken from the bank at that time and the subject left the scene on foot.

"I don't think the incident itself lasted more than a minute," said Keven Van Meeter...
