ST. GEORGE — Two Las Vegas men have been charged with armed bank robbery after allegedly making off with cash from a St. George credit union.

Aldo Sanchez and Brett Shumway, 41, were charged in U.S. District Court for Utah in connection with a Sept. 2 robbery of a Beehive Credit Union in St. George.

Shumway and Sanchez, who initially told police his name was Kristopher Johnson, were arrested shortly after the robbery when a St. George police officer initiated a traffic stop after spotting a vehicle with a man inside who matched the description of the bank robber.

A court hearing is set for 1 p.m. on Wednesday in St. George for Sanchez and Shumway.
