Two people are being recognized for their part in apprehending two bank robbers in Evart.
Evart Police Chief John Beam honored Evart Public Schools employee Carol Reedy and awarded Osceola County Sheriff’s Deputy Jed Avery and his dog, Ryker, with commendations on Tuesday.
Last May, Reedy noticed the get-away vehicle rapidly traveling through the school parking lot and phoned it in to Beam who relayed the information to Avery.
Avery and Ryker stopped the car and took defensive positions while waiting for other law enforcement personnel.
The robbers, David Dingee and Melissa Nudd both of Pompano Beach, Florida, were both convicted of the crime.
