2 ar­rested af­ter bank in Subiaco robbed

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - ARKANSAS -

Two Lo­gan County men were ar­rested Fri­day in the armed rob­bery of the Subiaco Fed­eral Credit Union in Subiaco.

Lo­gan County Sher­iff Boyd Hicks said the rob­bery oc­curred about 9:40 a.m. Fri­day. Two men en­tered the build­ing, one of them car­ry­ing a gun, and took an undis­closed amount of money, Hicks said.

About an hour later, Lo­gan County deputies spot­ted a Ford Mus­tang used by the rob­bers, the sher­iff said. It was parked be­hind the Friendly Tav­ern in Scran­ton.

When a deputy went in­side, one man ran out the front door, where an­other deputy was wait­ing. Hicks said the deputy used a stun gun to sub­due him.

The deputies ar­rested Shawn High­man, 44, of Paris — who au­thor­i­ties be­lieve has used aliases — and Bran­don James, 30, of Subiaco. Hicks said he will do some re­search to de­ter­mine if the name on High­man’s driver’s li­cense is, in fact, his name.

Hicks said the Ford Mus­tang was searched, and of­fi­cers found a gun and cloth­ing that matched a de­scrip­tion of what the rob­bers wore.

Hicks said his of­fice was as­sisted by sher­iff’s of­fices in John­son and Yell coun­ties, as well as the U.S. For­est Ser­vice and po­lice de­part­ments in Dar­danelle, Paris and Clarksville.
