3 Arrested In Connection With Champlin Bank Robbery
CHAMPLIN, Minn. (WCCO) — Authorities have arrested three people in connection with an armed robbery Wednesday morning at a Champlin bank.
According to the FBI, two masked men robbed the First Minnesota Bank around 10 a.m. The men conducted a “takeover style” robbery where they ordered everyone to get on the floor.
The FBI said one of the men displayed a handgun and jumped over the teller counter while the other man ordered two bank employees to help him get cash.
The men fled from the bank in a blue SUV.
A short time later, Brooklyn Park Police responded to a report of a burning vehicle at the intersection of 107th Avenue and Unity Avenue. Investigators believe that was the vehicle used in the bank robbery.
Later, Champlin Police arrested three people, two men and one woman, in connection with the robbery. The FBI identifies the three people arrested as Boyd Jerome Morson, Lawrence Deangelo Williamson and Tiffani Alisha Morson, all of Brooklyn Park.
They are currently being held at the Hennepin County Jail.
