ANACONDA, Mont. -

The suspect in an Idaho bank robbery has been arrested in southwestern Montana.

Anaconda police arrested 60-year-old Ronald Allen Schumaker on Thursday on a warrant issued after a U.S. Bank branch in Pocatello, Idaho was robbed. He remained jailed Friday in Anaconda on the $250,000 bond set in the warrant.

Employees at the Pocatello bank told police an intoxicated man entered the bank Tuesday afternoon, demanded money and left with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Schumaker and his traveling companion, 51-year-old John Stoor of Pocatello, also face charges of felony possession of dangerous drugs after officers found methamphetamines in the vehicle.

The Montana Standard reports one of the men told officers they were on their way to Butte to rob another bank.
