The suspect charged in connection with an armed bank robbery in Risco Tuesday has been identified as George E. Reed. New Madrid County Sheriff Terry Stevens says the robbery happened at the First State Community Bank. Stevens says a black man entered the bank with a gun demanding money. Reed allegedly took an undetermined amount of money before leaving the bank in a white older model Lincoln Centennial. Malden Police quickly located the suspected vehicle parked at 810 Tom Street. When officers made contact with Reed, they saw several items used in the bank robbery in the vehicle. Officers also found a package of methamphetamine and a large amount of cash. Several of the bills matched the First State Community Bank’s serial numbers of U.S. currency that had been stolen. Stevens says employees are safe and there were no injuries.
