A 36-year-old Sedalia man is in custody after he allegedly used a knife to rob a bank Saturday morning.

Dustin Bailey is being charged with three felony counts including first-degree robbery and armed criminal action in the incident. He is being held on a $50,000 bond.

According to a probable cause statement from the Sedalia Police Department, officers responded to a silent alarm at the Central Bank location in the 400 block of West Broadway Boulevard. An officer spoke with a teller who told them that a man with a scruffy beard, short brown hair, rotten teeth and tattoos under his right eye approached them. He then reportedly told the teller that he had a knife.

The teller told officers that the robber handed her a note that told her to fill an envelope with money.

The teller reportedly then filled the envelope with the money in her drawer which amounted to $2,130. The suspect then asked for his note back and left the bank, police say.

Police identified a photo of the suspect as Dustin Bailey and later located him wearing clothing that matched those described by the teller, according to the probable cause statement. He was arrested and a large sum of money was found both in his jacket and backpack, police say.

Bailey was also found with what was described as a "pick-type" tool, the probable cause statement says.
