OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation agents have arrested a father and son in connection with the robbery of an Idabel bank.

The FBI says 55-year-old Jesse Nanez, 55, and his 24-year-old son, Matthew Nanez were taken into custody following the robbery Wednesday of McCurtain County National Bank.

Authorities say an unidentified individual walked into the bank about 11:30 a.m. and robbed it.

The man was seen leaving in a white van with a partially obscured license plate. A few minutes after the robbery, OSBI special agents in Idabel heard about the robbery and observed a white van with something covering the license plate at a convenience store in west Idabel.

Both men were arrested without incident.

The money believed taken in the robbery was recovered.
