The Cassia County Sheriff's Office is searching for a red minivan, which is a vehicle of interest in a Burley bank robbery.

TWIN FALLS — The getaway driver in a Burley bank robbery has been arrested in Twin Falls, Cassia County Undersheriff George Warrell said.

Jerry Lee Adermann, 50, of Twin Falls will be charged in Cassia County with robbery, grand theft and criminal conspiracy, Warrell said.

He didn’t know what Adermann was arrested for in Twin Falls.

Kacey Allen Fisher, 43, was previously arrested in Twin Falls and charged with grand theft, robbery and burglary in Cassia County Magistrate Court, where Judge Blaine Cannon set a $1 million bond.

According to court documents, Fisher walked up to a bank teller’s station at D.L. Evans Bank on Overland Avenue on Feb. 10 and gave the teller a hand-written note demanding money.

The teller, who told police the robber “did not appear nervous,” gave him $1,300.

After Fisher was arrested in Twin Falls, he was detained at the Mini-Cassia Criminal Justice Center in Burley and interviewed by detectives.

Police said Fisher admitted to planning the bank robbery starting about a week prior to the event.

“Kasey stated he would never hurt anyone but would always write something on the note to scare the person,” court documents say. After the teller gave him the money, he walked back to a waiting van.

Police said previously that Fisher is a convicted felon and spent sevweral years in prison for bank robberies. A preliminary hearing for Fisher was set for Tuesday but has been rescheduled for March 13 in Cassia County court.
