Police have arrested Jeffrey Haydock for allegedly robbing a bank in downtown La Crosse yesterday. Haydock is in custody after search and arrest warrants were carried out early today in Jefferson County. Cops found evidence linking him to the Tuesday holdup at Citizens State Bank. La Crosse police will have more information this afternoon about Haydock's arrest.
Groundbreaking for a much-anticipated building is scheduled for this week in La Crosse. A third Riverside Center building south of Riverside Park is ready to get underway. A groundbreaking ceremony will be held on Thursday. The third Riverside Center building by developer Don Weber has been under close scrutiny as its development has been tied to a deal for a new city parking ramp nearby. That ramp will begin construction apparently later this summer.
For the third time in just over a month, La Crosse cops are investigating a bank robbery...
A masked man with a gun took cash from Citizens State Bank on Main Street late this morning. He walked out of the bank and has not been found yet. The robber is described as about 6 feet tall, in his 30's. He was wearing sunglasses, and a bandanna over his mouth. This holdup follows ones that happened last month at Firefighters Credit Union and the M-and-I Bank on Rose Street. A suspect was arrested for the Rose Street robbery. The credit union case is still unsolved.
La Crosse's two high schools are among those in Wisconsin missing the mark under federal No Child Left Behind standards. The state's education department says Central high's graduation rate wasn't up to snuff. Logan high, meanwhile, missed making adequate yearly progress in special education reading and math. Logan receives Title 1 federal funding and so would be subject to sanctions if it continues to miss progress markers in coming years.
La Crosse police are on the trail of another bank robber. Few details right now, but police are apparently looking for a thin white guy, about 6 feet tall, light hair, wearing a baseball cap, dark hoodie, dark sunglasses. They say a semi-automatic weapon of some kind is involved.
