Miller County bank robbed

Updated: Friday, March 16 at 5:40 a.m.

48-year-old David Kryzsik was arrested Thursday, suspected of holding up a Mid-Missouri bank and for attempting to rob another one.

Authorities said late Thursday morning a man wearing a disguise entered the First State Bank in Iberia, showed a gun and demanded cash.

A bank employee gave the suspect an unknown amount of cash and told Miller County Deputies he left in a tan colored car.

Then, less than a half hour later, Sheriff Bill Abbott and the Missouri State Highway Patrol said a vehicle matching the description from the First State Bank Employee pulled into the Central Bank in Tuscumbia.

Bank employees there had already been alerted and had locked the door.

The sheriff said the suspect got back in his car and drove off.

Two Missouri State Troopers located the Waynesville man driving behind the Tuscumbia City Hall and arrested him.

Kryzsik is in the Miller County Jail pending charges.
