ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) A bank on St. Cloud's west side was robbed Friday morning, prompting police to place a nearby elementary school under containment.
The Liberty Savings Bank at 5803 Ridgewood Road--across the street from the school--was robbed around 9:00 a.m.
Police Sergeant Jason Burke says the containment measure was done for precautionary reasons. He says the school was checked, the suspect was not found in the building, all children are safe and the containment has been lifted.
Specific details on the bank robbery have not been released yet.
