Incident: Bank Robbery
On Friday, August 15, 2014 at 9:44am officers were dispatched to Intercity State Bank at 2900 Schofield Ave in the Village of Weston for a report of a hold-up alarm. Upon officer’s arrival, they were notified that the bank had been robbed and the suspect had already fled the scene. A weapon was implied during the robbery and an undetermined amount of currency was taken. All the bank employees are safe and nobody was injured during this incident. The bank is temporary closed to process the scene, but representatives from Intercity State Bank advised they will open that location as soon as practical, but their other branch locations are open.
Pictures of the suspect are attached and we are requesting they be broadcast to the public and anyone with information on the identity of the suspect should call the Everest Metro Police Department at the number below.
It is unknown if the suspect fled on foot or in a vehicle, but officers from the Everest Metro and Rothschild Police Departments and deputies from the Marathon County Sheriff’s Department are assisting in checking the surrounding areas and set up an interim perimeter in the area. Area residents should be on the lookout for the attached suspect and if they observe anyone matching this description, they should stay indoors and call 911 immediately.

Weston, Wisconsin. – August 15th, 2014 - The Village of Weston announced today a partnership with Nextdoor (www.nextdoor.com), the private social network for neighborhoods, to improve Village-wide and neighbor-to-neighbor communications.
This integration with Nextdoor will enable the Village of Weston departments to use Nextdoor to build stronger, safer communities with the help of residents. Already Nextdoor has proven to be an essential and well-adopted tool for Weston residents. 11 Weston neighborhoods have started Nextdoor websites. The Village is encouraging more residents to take advantage of Nextdoor, where they can ask questions, get to know one another, and exchange local advice and recommendations,
“Today, we are excited to officially partner with Nextdoor,” said Daniel Guild, Weston Village Administrator. “Nextdoor will provide residents with more avenues to easily and effectively connect with Village departments, and each other, about the things that matter most to their communities.”
With Nextdoor, Weston residents can join private neighborhood websites to share information, including neighborhood public safety issues, community events and activities, local services, and even lost pets. The Village will be able to post information, such as important news, services, programs, public events, and emergency notifications to Nextdoor websites within the Village.
Nextdoor is free for residents and the Village. Each Weston neighborhood has its own private Nextdoor neighborhood website, accessible only to residents who verify that they live in the neighborhood. Neighborhoods establish and self-manage their own Nextdoor websites and the Village will not be able to access residents’ websites, contact information, or content. Information shared on Nextdoor is password protected and cannot be accessed by search engines.
Those interested in joining their neighborhood’s Nextdoor website can visit www.nextdoor.com and enter their address. If residents have questions about their Nextdoor website, please visit help.nextdoor.com.
