SBPD Arrest Bank Robbery Suspect

_____________
On this date, at 9:50 AM, the South Bend Police Department received a call of a robbery in progress at the First Source Bank located at 2323 S. Michigan Street, in the city. While the call was being dispatched, Lt. Jeff Rynearson, the commander of the SBPD K-9 Unit was driving past the institution, southbound on Main Street when he saw the two suspects fleeing the area of the bank. Lt. Rynearson began a pursuit on foot which led to one suspect being taken into custody and a recovery of money and other evidence.

According to bank personnel, the two male suspects entered the branch, approached the tellers and demanded money. They did not state they were armed, nor was any implication of such made. After making the demand, the two reportedly jumped the tellers counter and began removing the cash themselves. After a short time, the suspects exited the building and got into a silver vehicle and left southbound on Main St. which is when they encountered Lt. Rynearson. The silver vehicle was abandon at Fairview and Main Streets when the occupants fled on foot.

The identity of the suspect in custody and the second suspect, who remains at large, are not being released pending positive identification. The silver vehicle which was used in the robbery was found to have been stolen from the City of Mishawaka approximately 5 days ago. Two dye-packs also detonated with the suspects causing the vehicle, clothing and cash to be saturated with red dye. No one was injured in this case.

Anyone with information on this robbery or the identity and/or whereabouts of the second suspect is asked to call the SBPD Investigative Division at 574.235.9263 or Crime Stoppers at 574.288.STOP.
