PIERRE, S.D. (AP) – Two people accused of stealing at least $1,000 from a Pierre bank have made their initial court appearances and asked for public defenders.

The suspects identified as Ismael Ortiz and Alejandra Madrid face charges of bank larceny and aiding and abetting.

They’re accused of distracting a teller at a BankWest branch and then stealing money from her station. Authorities say the theft was recorded by the bank’s video surveillance system.
