Authorities say they have arrested five people who allegedly tried to rob a Nevada bank by presenting a false federal search warrant which demanded all of the money in the vault.

The FBI says that when the Wells Fargo bank manager refused to comply Friday, he was handcuffed and threatened in the Las Vegas suburb of Henderson.

Police arrested the five men, who are from Nevada and California, as they left the bank and the FBI later took custody of them. Each is charged with bank robbery.
