SIOUX CITY -- A Sioux City man already serving prison time for stealing a car has been charged in federal court with robbing a Moville, Iowa, bank.

An indictment charging Brendon Reed with one count of bank robbery was filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Sioux City. No court appearances have yet been scheduled.

The indictment says that Reed used "force, violence and intimidation" to rob United Bank of Iowa of $13,821 on March 30. Authorities at that time said that no weapons were used in the robbery and no bank employees were hurt.

Reed, 43, was arrested later in the day after he flipped a stolen BMW during a police pursuit near Salix, Iowa.

Authorities spotted a driver later identified as Reed driving the BMW, which had been reported stolen in Polk County. Iowa State Patrol troopers found Reed trying to change a flat tire on a rural Woodbury County road, but he sped away when they approached him and a chase ensued, reaching speeds of 90 mph before Reed lost control of the car on a gravel road about a mile north of Salix.

Reed had to be extricated from the car, which came to rest on its top, and was transported to a Sioux City hospital for treatment before he was taken to the Woodbury County Jail.

Reed pleaded guilty last month in Woodbury County District Court to one count of first-degree theft and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
