Westlake police say Trevor J. Spurlock, 21, and Tommy Gallagher, 36, the men they robbed the Columbia Road Key Bank the afternoon of June 28, were arrested in West Virginia following a report of a disturbance at a campground Monday night.  Law enforcement authorities will seek their extradition to Ohio to face charges. Warrants for the men’s apprehension had just been entered into a law enforcement database Monday morning.

During the robbery, a note demanding cash was given to a bank teller, but no weapons were displayed, police said. Police said the amount of money the alleged robbers received was currently unknown.

Early last week, the two left the employment of Great Lakes Exposition, the company that supplied rides for the annual festival at St. Bernadette Church, police said.
