A Sioux City man will face federal charges in a bank robbery, now that Nebraska is dropping its case. 67-year-old Max Lafferty, of Sioux City, Iowa, was indicted last week in U.S. District Court in Omaha.
Dakota County Attorney Kim Watson filed a motion Friday to dismiss the Nebraska case against Lafferty.
Lafferty is accused of robbing a Bank of the West branch in South Sioux City on Sept. 11. Police say he flashed a steak knife when he demanded cash from a bank worker and left the building with about $1,500. He was arrested about a block away.
A Dakota County jailer said Monday that Lafferty has been turned over to federal marshals.
