Mount Pleasant police arrested two male suspects less than two hours after MPPD says they robbed Landmark Credit Union, 6210 Washington Avenue, at gunpoint.

Officers responded around 10:30 a.m. to the credit union for a report of an armed robbery. Witnesses told police that both suspects displayed handguns during the incident.

There were no injuries reported, and the two men got away with an undisclosed amount of money.

Officers from Mount Pleasant and Racine actively searched for the suspects, and they were apprehended around noon in the city, according to a story in The Journal Times.

Both men were arrested near the intersection of 11th and Center Streets, near the St. Paul Senior Apartments, the story continues.
