First MidWest Bank in Sikeston robbed
By: Wes Wallace
Sikeston, MO - A bank robber makes an illegal withdrawal and gives back a deposit of his own.
It all happened around 3:30 Monday afternoon in Sikeston, at the First MidWest Bank.
Captain Mark Crocker with the Sikeston Department of Public Safety tells Heartland News, a white male walked into the bank, demanded money, left with some cash, and left behind a suspicious package and a threat.
That's when the Sikeston DPS and the Southeast Missouri Bomb Squad sprang into action. A Bomb Squad member and the specialized robot carefully examined the scene, and the robot eventually blew up the package. No explosives were inside.
