2 charged in attempted bank robbery

WICHITA — Two men who were arrested Tuesday after the attempted holdup of a Bank of America branch at 593 E. Pawnee were charged today with attempted aggravated robbery.

Bond for David D. Berry, 22, and Leonard L. Pollard, 19, was set at $100,000 apiece. They were ordered to return to court for a preliminary hearing on Feb. 24.

Wichita police said the suspects were arrested after officers followed footprints in the snow from the bank to a nearby apartment complex.

Police said the attempt to rob the bank was thwarted by the bank's bullet-proof glass.
