  • Harrisburg Police have a man in custody related to the morning armed robbery of the Old National Bank branch on Rollie Moore Drive, Harrisburg.
    Harrisburg Police Chief Bob Smith said at about 3:30 p.m. he had completed interviewing the man 10 minutes earlier.
    Smith said the prosecution will be handled at the local level with the Federal Bureau of Investigations, Harrisburg Police and the Saline County State's Attorney's Office investigating.
    Assistant State's Attorney Jason Olsen said there are many pieces of the puzzle left to put together and anticipated a report from Harrisburg Police and complete information — including the man's identity — to release to the public by Friday.
    "We are piecing everything together. Various agencies are talking to us and there is a lot of back and forth," Olsen said.
    At about 9:09 a.m. Thursday, Saline County Central Dispatch received a call reporting an armed robbery at the Old National Bank on Rollie Moore Drive in Harrisburg, according to a Nixle alert from the Saline County Sheriff's Office.
    Officers from the Harrisburg Police Department, Saline County Sheriff's Office and the FBI responded to the scene.
    The suspect was reported as a white male, between 6 feet 1 inches and 6 feet 2 inches with a baseball cap, goatee and weighing about 190 to 220 pounds.
    The man displayed a gun, but no injuries were reported. The man left with cash.
