Two arrested, infant placed with CFS after BMO Harris Bank robbed in Pleasant Prairie
PLEASANT PRAIRIE (WITI) — Pleasant Prairie police say two people were arrested following an armed robbery Monday, December 8th at the BMO Harris Bank on 76th Street.
It happened shortly before 3:00 p.m.
Police were initially dispatched to the bank following a 911 hang-up call. Upon an officer’s arrival, he observed a man exiting the bank — fleeing through a nearby retail district.
Police then received a hold up alarm from the bank.
An officer pursued the man — locating him in the rear bed of a pickup truck that was parked behind a neighboring business. He was removed from the truck bed and taken into custody.
Officers confirmed that the 43-year-old man matched the description of the suspect who had just robbed the BMO Harris Bank.
A 23-year-old woman who was driving the truck was also arrested. Both are being held at the Kenosha County Detention Center.
A one-year-old child found inside the truck was placed with Kenosha County Department of Children and Family Services.
