Waterloo parolee arrested on suspicion of leaving Iowa

Posted: Updated:

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) -- A Waterloo man who was paroled from a life sentence for a 1976 killing has been arrested on suspicion of leaving Iowa without permission.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports authorities say they found 58-year-old Duane Eugene Brant in California May 11 with about $220,000. California State Patrol says troopers found the cash along with a dozen empty hockey bags in Eugene's SUV as he passed through Truckee.

Brant is being held at the Black Hawk County jail in Iowa without bond. A parole violation hearing has been scheduled. It is not immediately clear if he has an attorney.

Brant was convicted of first-degree murder in a 1976 convenience store robbery that left the clerk dead. Brant was accused of providing the murder weapon and being the getaway driver.
