Police tracked down suspects near Davenport

CORALVILLE — Two Missouri residents face felony robbery charges after allegedly stealing $1,000 from a Coralville bank.

According to Coralville police complaints, Peter A. Lundberg, 60, of St. Ann, Mo., entered Coralville’s Bank of the West, 800 22nd Ave., at about 3:15 p.m. Thursday and told a bank teller, “Give me all the big bills,” and “this is a robbery.”

The teller gave Lundberg $1,070 in cash and he fled to a nearby vehicle driven by Bridegett D. Durborow, 48, of St. Peters, Mo., according to police.

Police say Lundberg laid down in the car’s back seat while Durborow drove away from the scene.

Suspect and vehicle information was broadcast to all Iowa police agencies and the alleged bank robbers were stopped by officers from the Scott County Sheriff’s Office and Iowa State Patrol near Davenport. They were returned to local authorities and booked Thursday in the Johnson County Jail.

Durborow admitted to knowing the bank was being robbed by Lundberg and that she did not think she would get in trouble for driving the car, according to police records.

Both have been charged with second-degree robbery, a Class C felony, punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
