A man wanted in connection to an October bank robbery in New Bloomfield was arrested in San Antonio Saturday, the Callaway County Sheriff’s Office said.
Gary L. Coleman, 49, of Jefferson City, was arrested with the assistance of the San Antonio Robbery Task Force on a Callaway County warrant.
Coleman was wanted as the suspect in the Oct. 6, 2012, Bank Star One robbery in New Bloomfield. The suspect entered the bank that morning, told a teller to put an undisclosed sum of money in a plastic bag and left the store calmly, running across the highway to northbound Old 54.
Callaway County Sheriff Dennis Crane said his office received several tips identifying the suspect as Coleman following the release of security footage, and that Coleman was “out of the state and on the run.”
