Bank Robbery and Chase

Submitted By: Andrew Lofholm, alofholm@k2tv.com

Two suspects are in custody after they allegedly robbed a Casper bank. A male and female suspect were arrested right after their black Nissan Altima was brought to a halt by a retaining wall, after police say they robbed the Bank of The West on Wyoming Blvd. At around 11:30 this morning, police got a call that the bank had just been robbed. Following witnesses dedcribing the suspects, and their car, the robbery turned into a high speed chase. The exact route is unclear, but it is about 3 miles from the bank. Casper Police say they are working with the FBI to investigate if this robbery is connected to other bank robberies in the area. We're told the male suspect did suffer minor injuries but is expected to be okay, after a visit to the Wyoming Medical Center.
