White City Bank Robber Captured in Less than an Hour
Jackson County Sheriff’s detectives arrested Bryan Lepneske, 40, shortly after one o-clock this afternoon and charged him with the robbery of Wells Fargo Bank on Highway 62 in White City at 12:41 p.m.
Arriving in response to the alarm, deputies were told the robber was last seen running towards the Big R Store across the highway and a description was provided.
A man matching the description was confirmed to have checked into the Brookside Inn on Leigh Way. Detectives located Lepneske in his room and arrested him without incident.
The cash and other evidence were recovered. The official charge at this time is theft one, but further charges may be added after the District Attorney reviews the case.
