Two Rochelle men have been arrested in connection with a hold up Tuesday at the Creston branch of the Holcomb Bank.

William Wayne Clark II, 39, was arrested within three hours of the incident and faces a charge of robbery, a Class 2 felony.

A second man Jeremy L. Hines, 37, was taken into custody early Wednesday morning on a charge of possession of stolen property, a Class 3 felony. 

Both are being held at the Ogle County Jail and were scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.

According to a press release from Ogle County Sheriff Brian VanVickle, his office received a holdup alarm at 2:04 p.m. from the bank at 400 E. Ill. 38.

During the course of the investigation, a deputy recognized Clark on the bank’s surveillance tape from previous contacts with him.
