Federal indictments accuse two men of robbing ND bank

BISMARCK — Two men accused in the armed robbery of a North Dakota bank have been indicted in federal court.

Colt Schneider and Johnner Ward Jr. face charges of bank robbery and use of a firearm during a crime of violence.

Authorities say Schneider and Ward held up the American Bank Center in New England on Oct. 18.

The suspects allegedly were dressed in ski masks and got away with an undisclosed amount of money.

Court documents show that Ward was arrested on Nov. 8 in Midland, Texas, and Schneider was arrested on Nov. 13 in Sarasota, Fla.

Ward is scheduled for arraignment in federal court in Bismarck on Dec. 5. A court appearance for Schneider has not been set.
