Suspect in Lincoln bank robbery arrested in Kansas

Authorities said a man suspected of robbing a Lincoln bank last week was arrested in Kansas. 

Cody George, 42, of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, was booked in Nemaha County Jail in Kansas last Friday. Lincoln police responded earlier that day to an armed robbery at the Lincoln Federal Savings Bank near 70th and O Street.

Authorities issued a warrant for George, who was reportedly found slumped over the wheel of a vehicle after somebody called in a check welfare on him. Police said he was found with a handgun and cash strewn about the vehicle. 

 

George was arrested for possession of stolen property and possession of a controlled substance. He also has a Lancaster County warrant for robbery and use of a firearm to commit a felony. 

Lincoln Police Department investigators were sent to Kansas to work on the case.
