By Jeff Raasch, Reporter
ANDREW, Iowa - A Milwaukee man who authorities say helped rob an Andrew bank of more than $45,000 is now in jail.
Jason A. Brown, 30, is charged with first-degree robbery and joint criminal conduct in the Sept. 2 hold-up at Maquoketa State Bank, according to the Jackson County Sheriff's Office.
Authorities said a second man who was with Brown displayed a silver pistol when they robbed the bank. No one was hurt.
The gunman is described as a black male, around 20 to 25 years old, between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-10 and about 180 pounds. He had short hair and two gold-colored front teeth.
Both men left in a dark-colored Ford Explorer with Wisconsin license plates. A female seen in surveillance video is also sought by police.
Evidence analyzed by agents with the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation linked Brown to the crime, authorities said.
Brown is currently being held in the Milwaukee County Jail in Milwaukee on unrelated charges. He was arrested Tuesday, according to online jail records.
