The MPD and Monona Police are asking for Mr. Yapp to be charged with two counts of Robbery of Financial Institution.


A Madison Police patrol officer spotted a Honda CRV parked near a residence in the 5000 block of Camden Road on November 26th. It appeared similar to the getaway vehicle used in the robbery of the Anchor Bank branch on Cottage Grove Rd.

The next day, detectives from the MPD, Monona Police, and Fitchburg Police went to have a conversation with a man who resides at the residence. The three departments were all investigating recent bank robberies.

At that time, on November 27th, Mr. Jason J. Yapp, age 42, was taken into custody on a parole hold.

Since that time, investigations continued. Now, the MPD and Monona Police are asking Mr. Yapp be charged with two counts of robbery: one for the holdup of the Cottage Grove Road  Anchor Bank branch on November 25th, and one for the November 18th robbery of another Anchor Bank branch, located at 6501 Monona Dr.
