KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — Kalamazoo County authorities say two men have been charged in connection to two recent bank robberies.

Allen Francis Nutter, 56, and 45-year-old Donald William Guess, both of Kalamazoo, were charged Tuesday with bank robbery. Bond was set at $10,000 cash/surety each.

The first robbery happened Thursday at the Comerica Bank branch on W. Main Street in Oshtemo Township. The second happened Saturday at the PNC Bank branch on W. Michigan Avenue in Galesburg. In both cases, a man robbed the bank and then got into a minivan that someone else was driving.

A release from the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office did not say where or when the suspects were arrested, nor did it say what led investigators to them.

Authorities say Nutter robbed the banks and Guess was his accomplice.
