Around 12:30 p.m. the Taney County Sheriff's Office was called to the reported hold-up at First Home Savings Bank at Kissee Mills Junction. That's about three miles east of Forsyth on U.S. 160.
Tellers say a white male with a t-shirt around his head, wearing shorts, and no shoes had entered the bank and demanded money to be placed in a bag. He indicated that he had a gun but none was shown.
The suspect then left walking east on U.S. 160. After a long search in the area, the suspect was not found.
Taney County deputies, assisted by the Missouri State Highway Patrol, were able to identify the suspect from video from the bank and information from the investigation.
At 7:00 p.m. deputies located the suspect on Beaver Creek just off of Patterson Road east of Taneyville.
After a brief struggle, the suspect, a 43-year-old male from Kissee Mills, was taken into custody. He is currently in the Taney County Jail awaiting the formal filing of charges.
No one was injured in the robbery. An undisclosed amount of cash was taken but later returned to the bank.
