A bank robbery followed by a standoff on LaCrosse's north side . Cops say John Tolar went into M and I Bank on Rose Street a little before noon and demanded money. After getting his hands on some cash the 45 year old apparently holed up in a home near Avon Street. After a brief standoff Tolar was taken to a local hospital. After he's medically cleared he will go to jail. Tolar has an open felony battery case and has a long list of arrests and convictions in LaCrosse county going back to a battery arrest in 2000. Police did recover some money from today's bank robbery.
LaCrosse police are responding to a bank robbery. This morning someone held up the M and I bank on Rose Street. At this point cops are trying to figure out how many people were involved and what exactly happened.

The city of La Crosse may be on the hook for damages after a drug bust on the south side. Cops used a no-knock warrant to go through the door at a place near 16th and Jackson back in early April. They were looking for a couple of crack dealing brothers and their woman. What they found was thousands of dollars in cash, lots of drugs, guns, ammo. The works. Police also apparently did not enter gingerly. They were, after all, on the trail of armed, drug-dealing felons. The entry team left some damage and the landlord wants the city to pay. Carriage House Properties has submitted a 13 hundred bill for damages to doors, windows and walls.
