Cops: 2 Arrested In Connection With Kelliher Bank Robbery

KELLIHER, Minn. (WCCO) -- Authorities have arrested two men in connection with a Dec. 10 bank robbery in Kelliher, Minn.

The Beltrami County Sheriff's Office said the robbery took place at the First State Bank of Big Fork, located on Main Street in Kelliher, approximately 55 miles north of Bemidji.

After the suspect brandished a shotgun with a silver-type barrel at a bank employee, while wearing a white plastic Halloween ghost mask, he fled the bank, authorities say. Investigators then arrested two male suspects from Bemidji on Wednesday.

The identities of those involved and additional details will be released on Thursday once the investigation is complete.
