One person in custody after Chauncey bank robbery

One person is in custody after Thursday's bank robbery in Chauncey.

Dodge County sheriff's investigators traced a lead to Pierce County where one suspect was caught after a high speed chase that began near the town of Blackshear, said Capt. Tony Winborn, public information officer for the Dodge County Sheriff's Office.

A search warrant uncovered evidence from the robbery and an undisclosed amount of money was recovered from the Citizens Bank and Trust Company where two masked men accosted a bank employee on the way into the bank early Thursday, Winborn said.

Authorities expect to make other arrests and are not releasing the suspects name at this time. The FBI and GBI are assisting in the ongoing investigation, Winborn said.
