March 31, 2022
As this issue goes to press, this newspaper has been unable to confirm reports that an arrest has been made relative to the robbery of the Guaranty State Bank’s Burr Oak office which happened Feb. 9, 2021.
A rumor is circulating this week that the investigation has led to a local person or persons having been arrested and charged. However, Jewell County Sheriff Don Jacobs told a reporter for this newspaper “I have nothing to tell you.”
The robbery happened about 9:45 on a Tuesday morning. At the time, the robber was described as being a white male about 6 feet tall of medium build. He was dressed in dark colors and carrying a rifle.
A multi-agency search for the suspect ensued.
A stolen pickup which may have been used in the robbery was recovered later that day.
