Bank Robbery Update: New details emerge from Princeton heist


More information has been released regarding the bank robbery in Princeton on May 19th.

Mercer County Sheriff Jose Lopez reports 67-year-old Phillip Michael Blink of Promise City, Iowa took $4,150 when he robbed the First Interstate Bank. The sheriff says the money, a handgun, and other items used in the robbery were recovered, and they will be held as evidence until they are released by the courts.

Blink allegedly said he drove by several banks and decided on the First Interstate Bank in Princeton because it appeared there were no customer vehicles in the parking lot at the time of his arrival. Several citizens have inquired about a dog that was in Blink’s pickup truck.  The dog is in good condition and is being cared for.
