CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) - A dispute over a transaction at First Bank in Carbondale ends with the arrest of a Carbondale man.
Officers were initially dispatched to the bank around 1:30 p.m. on Monday, July 17, for a report of a bank robbery in progress.
Investigators stopped the suspect who was leaving the scene in a flatbed truck when they arrived.
The suspect, David Colon, was reportedly upset about a transaction at the bank in the 1500 block of West Main Street. He went into an office to talk about the problem with a manager.
Witnesses said Colon "detained the bank employee inside the office" before he left.
An employee thought Colon was armed with a concealed handgun. It turned out to be a taser. No one got hurt.
Investigators confirmed that Colon never tried to rob the bank.
Colon faces charges of unlawful restraint, unlawful use of weapons, and disorderly conduct.
