Two Suspects Arrested for Bank Robbery

Lubbock Sheriff's Office Lubbock Sheriff's Office

$13,000 in stolen bank money is now costing two Lubbock men their freedom. Lubbock police arrested two men in connection with a bank robbery that happened January 26th. NewsChannel 11's Jennifer Vogel explains how police arrested the two suspects.

The first arrest came around 12:45 this afternoon. Officers stopped 20-year-old Jeremy Michael Yost near 4th and Milwaukee. About 15 minutes later, 21-year-old Dale Wayne Imhoff was also stopped by officers just down the street on Erskine and Milwaukee. As of Wednesday night both men are being charged with three counts of aggravated robbery, after holding up three bank employees the morning of January 26th.

The tip came from Crime Line. And just six days later, police were able to identify the disguised men, get a search warrant, and make two arrests. Police were able to work with pictures taken with a security camera inside the bank. For the past few days, police got enough evidence for a search warrant, and then followed the two suspects. Early this afternoon, police stopped two men in their cars and arrested both on suspicion of the bank robbery.

This is the second time this bank has been robbed in the past three months. In both cases there were a lot of similarities. Both crimes happened around 10 in the morning, and both times a suspect was wearing a fake beard. Police say they are still investigating to see if the suspects were involved in both robberies. Lt. Roy Bassett says, "Well certainly the detectives will be looking into that whether or not any connection there. At this point, the warrants were just served on the robbery on January 26th."

NewsChannel 11 asked the bank if they were happy to see the alleged robbers behind bars, but they declined to comment.
