3 Banks Robbed During Bush, Kerry Visit


Associated Press

DAVENPORT, Iowa - Three banks were robbed while President Bush and
Democratic nominee John Kerry were speaking just blocks away from one
another Wednesday morning.

The Ralston Credit Union was robbed at 10:45 a.m., shortly after the
president began speaking at LeClaire Park in this eastern Iowa town, said
Davenport police Capt. David Struckman.

The next robbery, at First National Bank, happened at 11:23 a.m., followed
by another at 11:45 a.m. at Southeast National Bank, said Struckman, who
also served as the department's liaison to the U.S. Secret Service during
the visits from the two political leaders.

Kerry had begun his economic forum at River Center at 10 a.m.

No one was injured in the robberies. Authorities weren't releasing details
on what weapons may have been used or how much money was taken.
