(Riverton, Wyo.) – It’s been a relatively quiet day in Riverton, except for the special police units escorting an armored truck around town dropping off cash at local banks. Around 3:30 p.m. police units closed off the alley ways on both sides of the street at First Interstate Bank and officers with automatic weapons suddenly appeared on South Broadway to provide security for the money drop. It was the second money drop this week. Traffic on South Broadway was halted momentarily a bit later when the armored guards took a dolly worth of cash across the street to the drive-up facility. The banks and many local businesses have been busy today as mineral royalty settlement checks arrived in the mail for members of the Northern Arapaho Tribe. See County10.com’s reporting of the day here and here and here.
