LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Federal prosecutors have charged an Omaha man with robbing a Lincoln bank last week.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports that 30-year-old Kevin Brown appeared before a judge in Omaha on Monday.

Prosecutors say Brown and another person went into the Great Western Bank branch in southeast Lincoln on June 22, acted as though they had a gun and demanded bank employees to lie on the floor.

Officials say the pair stole nearly $85,000.

No customers were inside at the time of the robbery, and no one was hurt.



Prosecutors say Brown has no prior record, but characterized the bank robbery as a violent crime.
