    PERRY, Iowa (AP) - Police say a bank robbery suspect killed himself during a standoff with police at a home in the Des Moines suburb of Perry.

    Des Moines television station KCCI says Perry police and Dallas County Sheriff's deputies surrounded the home early Saturday morning.

    Several hours later, a news release from the two agencies said the standoff was over, and that the man inside - 25-year-old Caleb Anderson - had killed himself.

    Police say Anderson was suspected of robbing a Raccoon Valley Bank branch in Minburn on Friday afternoon.

    Police say a negotiator was working with Anderson before he stopped talking to officials. A team of law enforcement officers then entered the home and found Anderson dead.

    Authorities plan to search the home for evidence related to the robbery.
