OMAHA, Neb (FOX 42 KPTM)-- Fremont police have released the names of the three people arrested in Wednesday morning's bank robbery.

Officers say Warren D. Vasser, 44, from Council Bluffs; Warren D. Copeland, 27, from Omaha; and Angelo C. Douglas, 25, from Omaha robbed the First Bank and Trust on Military Avenue then took off.

Officers say a Fremont police officer saw an SUV matching the description with at least three people inside driving south on Hwy 275 toward Omaha. They sent that information to Nebraska State Patrol.

Investigators say NSP troopers tried to stop that car on Dodge near Elkhorn, but they kept going.

It started a small chase that officers say ended near 168th and Dodge in the Village Pointe area.

All three men are charged with using a weapon to commit a felony, being in possession of stolen items, and being a felon with a firearm.

Police say they are not looking for any more people, despite witness accounts this morning that as many as five people robbed the bank.
