Shawano Co. bank robber arrested shortly after crime
SHAWANO - A would-be bank robber didn't make it very far in Shawano County Monday.

Workers at the Cash Tyme Store on Green Bay Street in Shawano called police around 3:30 p.m. They said a man demanded all of their money. When they refused, the man left.

Moments later, workers at the Co-Vantage Credit Union just down the street called police.

They said a man had done the same thing, only this time he took the money. A witness there identified the robber as 47-year-old Darrin Church.

Police quickly tracked Church down and arrested him.

He never used or threatened anyone with a weapon and no one was hurt. Charges against Church are expected later Tuesday.

Under the Republican bill, fish farms no longer need permits to discharge material into a wetland if the wetland was created for fish farming. Natural water bodies can serve as fish farms and farms wouldn't need permits to construct or enlarge artificial water bodies connected to a navigable waterway. New permit conditions will be prohibited unless needed to meet water quality standards.
