By Becky Ogann

WATERLOO (AP) - Waterloo police have arrested two men in a robbery of a bingo hall following a nearly three-hour standoff.

One of the men is wanted in a string of other robberies.

Police arrested Brandon Reynolds, of Chicago, Tuesday evening after a tactical team drove him from a vacant house with tear gas.

Elton Wade, of Waterloo, was arrested before the standoff when police searched a nearby house.

The men are charged with first-degree robbery in Monday's holdup at a bingo hall at the National Cattle Congress grounds.

Reynolds is also charged with three other robberies in Waterloo and Cedar Falls.

Reynolds and Wade are being held in the Black Hawk County jail. It was not immediately known if they had an attorney.
