Tomah Bank Robbery Suspect Caught
Cops in Tomah didn't have to look far to find a bank robber there yesterday. Police say 34 year-old Mark Rathbun was hanging out relatively close to the Farmers and Merchants Bank in the City of Tomah when they picked him up. They say he matched the description provided by tellers of the guy who came into the bank around 1:30, showed a note, said he had a gun, got some money and left. Sure enough, police say Rathbun, had the money. But he didn't have a gun. Never did, he told cops. But he's still been sent to the Monroe county jail on Armed Robbery charges.
