ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Bank robberies are on the decline in the St. Louis region and throughout eastern Missouri.

The FBI on Wednesday released year-end figures showing that the number of bank robberies in eastern Missouri dropped in 2013. The 53 reported robberies last year were the lowest total since 2008.

Thirty-nine of the 2013 robberies have been solved—about one-third of them on the day of the crime.
