The Linn County Sheriff's Office says two men suspected of robbing a Center Point bank over the weekend are in custody out of state.
Deputies were called to the Keystone Savings Bank on Rosedale Drive in Center Point just after 11 a.m. on Saturday. They say a man handed a note to the teller demanding money and after being given cash, ran from the bank in a westerly direction.
Authorities had been looking for George R. "Ricky" Gaunt as a person of interest. He was last known to live in Kentucky and was last seen in a late 1990's gold Nissan Maxima or Toyota Camry.
Colonel John Stuelke says Gaunt was arrested by the Blue Earth County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday following a bank robbery in Eagle Lake, Minnesota.
Detectives with the Linn County Sheriff’s Office met with Gaunt and determined he was responsible for the Center Point bank robbery. He is also a suspect in two Virginia bank robberies that occurred in early October.
A second suspect, 29-year-old Justin M. Wade, was also identified. He is in custody out of state on charges unrelated to the Center Point robbery. Charges are pending for both.
The case remains under investigation by the Linn County Sheriff’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
