Belleville Man Faces Charge Involving 2015 Robbery of Mt. Vernon Bank

April 18, 2017

A 47-year-old Belleville man has been returned to Jefferson County to face a felony charge of financial institution robbery in connection with a June 2015 robbery of the former Old National Bank.

Rodney Brock had a warrant issued for his arrest on March 23rd and was arrested out of state. Jefferson County State’s Attorney Sean Featherstun says Brock was recently returned to Jefferson County, where he is being held in the county’s Justice Center in lieu of $250,000 bond.

The charge alleges Brock, by the threat of force or by intimidation, took cash belonging to the Old National Bank. The bank is now known as First Mid-Illinois Bank.
