Two brothers, arrested last week on drug charges in North Florida, have been accused of a December bank robbery in Chiefland, police reported.
Warrants were issued Tuesday for robbery and grand theft charges against Robert Hayden Huffman Jr., 30, and Daniel Clint Huffman, 23, both of Chiefland, according to police. The pair confessed to a Dec. 26 robbery at the Capital City Bank in Chiefland, a police report stated.
Last week, a man entered the bank and handed a teller a note that said, "Give me all the money and know one gets hurt," according to police. The robber left with more than $7,000 in cash.
Chiefland Police sent out information about the robbery to law enforcement agencies and were contacted on Thursday by the Marianna Police Department. The agency reported it had arrested two men, possibly linked to the robbery, on unrelated drug charges.
The men had about $1,700 when they were arrested, police reported. Three of the $20 bills they had matched "bait money" that had been given to the robber by the bank employee.
Chiefland police allege Daniel Huffman went into the bank while his brother helped plan the robbery and was waiting with a getaway vehicle, said Chiefland Police Chief Robert Douglas.
