Bank robbery suspect arrested in Richland

A suspect sought in a Nebraska bank robbery was arrested Thursday in Richland County, N.D.

Edward Harold Corey Jr., 57, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, was arrested after his vehicle was spotted at Dakota Magic Casino near Hankinson, the Richland County Sheriff’s Office said in a news statement.

The sheriff’s office initiated a traffic stop of the 1997 Ford Taurus, and Corey was taken into custody without incident.

The U.S. Marshals Service had alerted Richland County authorities of Corey’s description and vehicle after a Nebraska bank robbery earlier this week.

An undetermined amount of money was recovered, and the case remains under investigation.
