CHEYENNE -- Sheriff's officials say employees of a bank in a small town in southeast Wyoming unwittingly thwarted a holdup by locking the front door. Sheriff's officials arrested 20-year-old Cody L. Dysart and 25-year-old William T. McCurdy on Wednesday, and 28-year-old Derrick A. Gifford on Thursday. Employees of the Burns Bank in Burns went inside to open up early on Jan. 31. They locked the door behind them until opening time. Police say the men from Cheyenne planned to rob the bank, but the door was locked. The men fled after hearing on a police scanner a report about a truck they'd stolen. Attempts to reach the men in jail were unsuccessful.
