May 6, 2016

EVANSVILLE (AP) — Police in Natrona County have arrested a man in connection with an armed bank robbery in Evansville.

A man with a semi-automatic handgun robbed the Platte Valley Bank on Tuesday morning and fled with $12,000. No customers were in the bank at the time.

Authorities say 64-year-old Kemp Eugene Cravens, of Casper, turned himself in to police shortly after the robbery and is facing federal charges.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports he is accused of driving a rented SUV to the bank and demanding money from two tellers while wearing a hooded jacket, a dark covering over his face, dark sunglasses and black gloves.

Booking documents do not indicate if Cravens has hired an attorney.
