Iowa man arrested in connection with Clarence bank robbery

Posted: Updated:

 

CLARENCE, Mo. -- A Moulton, Iowa, man is in custody in connection with a Thursday afternoon bank robbery in Clarence.

Cody A. Barber, 26, was arrested on suspicion of first-degree robbery and is being held in the Shelby County Jail.

The investigation continues into the robbery and the possibility of an accomplice.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported that a white man wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt entered Community State Bank about 1:45 p.m. Armed with a handgun, the man demanded money and fled the area on foot with an undetermined amount.

A short time later, a citizen observed a man matching the description of the one who robbed the bank get in to a blue Pontiac parked in a nearby lot and drive the car away. The citizen was able to follow the vehicle out of Clarence and onto Shelby County roads just northeast of town while advising responding officers from the Highway Patrol and the Shelby County Sheriff's Department.

Officers quickly located the blue Pontiac abandoned on a county road about 1.5 miles northeast of Clarence. Officers set up a search perimeter and called in a patrol aircraft. At about 2:50 p.m., a Highway Patrol canine unit located Barber and police were able to take him into custody.

Capt. James Wilt, commanding officer of Highway Patrol Troop B in Macon, and Shelby County Sheriff Dennis Perrigo thanked local citizens and bank officials who were able to provide information that ultimately led to Barber's capture.

In addition to the Highway Patrol and the Shelby County Sheriff's Department, agencies involved in the investigation were the Monroe County Sheriff's Department, the Macon County Sheriffs Department, the Macon Police Department and the Missouri Department of Conservation.

    Quincy police officer Michael Cirrincione felt helpless early Wednesday morning while responding to a fire at 515 S. 17th. Cirrincione was one of four officers who were the first on the scene. He helped kick out a basement window that led to Haley Houge, 22, being saved from the blaze. She told officers that two others, her 4-month-old son and her fiance, were still in the house. "They were so far, but so close to getting out," Cirrincione said. "It was a matter of a few feet."
