The investigation into the bank robbery that took at the downtown Wells Fargo Bank in Yankton on Tuesday afternoon will most likely take some time to complete. Chief of Police Brian Paulsen says while it is possible that law enforcement may catch a lucky break in the case, it is more likely that some time will be needed to assess the evidence that is now being investigated. Paulsen says the employees at the Wells Fargo Bank deserve credit for the way they conducted themselves both during and after the robbery. Paulsen says he is not sure what the contents of the package left by the robber at the Wells Fargo was, it is currently being examined by the FBI.

Westbrook Estates Ribbon Cutting

Tuesday, July 26, 2016

A ribbon cutting was held yesterday at the newly completed Westbrook Estates apartment building, part of a new housing development on Yankton’s west-side. Steve Boote  owner of Eagle Construction says the involvement of Yankton Area Progressive Growth and local governments in creating a tax increment financing district for the project has made it possible to charge monthly rent below the current market value. A number of local contractors have worked on the project and Boote says that has contributed to the speed with which the construction work has been completed. Boote says his investment group has enough land to build three more similarly sized apartment buildings at Westbrook Estates.
