It was 25 minutes before closing time Friday when an armed stranger, dressed in a baseball cap and sunglasses, walked into an Akeley bank, pointed his gun at the teller and said, "Put the money in this bag."


She hastily complied.

"He was in and out in less than 30 seconds," said Hubbard County Sheriff Frank Homer, whose department is assisting the FBI in the investigation of the heist at First National Bank of Walker's Akeley branch.
