Men accused of Dubuque bank robbery will be brought back to Iowa

Posted:

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -- A Madison County, Kentucky judge says authorities can bring Travis Strowbridge and Michael Holton back to Iowa to face robbery charges.  The two are accused of the 2nd Degree Robbery of two U.S. Bank employees on Thursday, December 17.

According to court documents, U.S. Bank employees Silvia Corral and Christine Ahlvin were loading the outside ATM when a van jumped a curb and sped toward them.  Both employees ran inside the bank.  Ahlvin had loaded her cartridges of money, but Corral dropped hers on the ground before running.

Over $48,000 in $20 bills was stolen. 

Court documents show Strowbridge was living with Corral and her fiance.  Police eventually found Holton leaving the house where Corral lived and brought him to the police station to make a statement.  He was later released and told to stay in town.  Corral is not considered a suspect.

The following day, both Strowbridge and Holton were stopped in a Suburban in Madison County, Kentucky.  The SUV contained around $44,000 in all twenty dollar bills.  24-year-old Darrell Moore was also in the vehicle.

Iowa authorities are responsible for bringing the men back to Iowa.  Until then, they are being held in the Madison County Jail.  All three men arrested in the SUV face related theft charges.  They may have to face those Kentucky charges before coming back to Iowa.

Watch KWWL at noon, 5, and 6 for more information about the extradition process.
