LAS VEGAS—The FBI and the Henderson Police Department have arrested five persons following an attempted robbery of a Henderson bank. Last Friday, November 13, 2009, five persons entered the Wells Fargo Bank at 1411 West Sunset Road and presented a false federal search warrant to the bank manager demanding all the money in the bank’s vault.
