Two charged in connection with attempted bank robbery
Winter clothing on a warm spring day made Associated Bank personnel suspicious that a man might be contemplating robbing the bank. They called authorities, who arrested a Town of Lisbon woman and a Milwaukee man.
Krystal Y. Kompsi, 28, of N65 W22001 Woodfield Drive, and Mark H. Scott, 31, of Milwaukee, were each charged March 22 with a felony count of conspiracy to commit robbery with threat of force. They are accused of planning to rob the Sussex bank March 21.
According to the criminal complaint filed in Waukesha County Circuit Court, Scott entered Associated Bank, N64 W23710 Main St., at about 9:10 a.m. wearing a “puffer type” winter coat, which a teller thought was odd because it was 70 degrees outside. The teller immediately informed her supervisor about her suspicions, the complaint said.
The bank manager then greeted Scott, who said he wanted to open an account, and he was directed to another employee, the complaint said. The teller saw Scott leave the bank about five minutes later and also noted that he was wearing gloves, the complaint said.
The Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department was contacted about a suspicious person in the bank, and deputies waited outside for the suspect to come out. When Scott left the bank, he walked toward a vehicle Kompsi was in, and both were taken into custody. A deputy found Scott in possession of a piece of paper that said, “give me the money,” the complaint said.
