Government asks that Pinnacle Bank robbery suspect be held without bond

Federal prosecutors filed a motion today in U. S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri to hold one of two men accused in the November 14 robbery of the Pinnacle Bank of Joplin without bond.

The motion notes that Jimmy Eisenhour has confessed and that shots were fired during the robbery, making it a "crime of violence."

The robbery was described in this Joplin Police Department news release:

On November 14, 2016 at 3:46 PM officers with the Joplin Police Department were dispatched to 1316 E. 32nd St. Pinnacle Bank for a business alarm.

On arrival officers learned that an attempted robbery had taken place.

Two suspects entered the building, communicated with employees, and then fired several rounds. At this time investigators are on scene interviewing
witnesses and conducting a thorough investigation. No one was hurt during the event.
