Savannah Bank Robber

This is so a corporal will be able to testify in the trial of a suspected international bank robber.

Twenty-nine year old Allan Sharif of Portugal faces a trail next month after allegedly robbing the Nodaway Valley Bank in Savannah - while sitting in his home country.

Investigators say Sharif extorted money from the Savannah bank last year… as well as others in the US, Great Britain, Canada, and Switzerland.

He allegedly called the banks and demanded a wire transfer of money or else he would blow up the bank with explosives he had planted.

Corporal Roger Phillips will testify in his trial… via a video teleconference from the highway patrol headquarters in St. Joseph.
