One suspect was taken into custody and , "A significant amount of evidence was collected."  Authorities expect the suspect to be charged Friday and more details will be released at that time.  The Northfield Police Chief continues to urge the public to come forward if they saw anything suspicious Tuesday in downtown Northfield.

The same Premier Bank branch, located at 112 Fifth Street in downtown Northfield was robbed last October.  Chief Nelson told KDHL POWER 96 with the robbery taking place in the middle of the day, "somebody had to see something."

He added even the smallest thing could lead to catching the men responsible for the armed robbery.  No one inside was injured.
