Two more banks were shut down by the FDIC late Friday, bringing the year total to 22 as small institutions continue to struggle with bad loans.

As of December 31, 2009, Carson River Community Bank had $51.1 million in total assets and $50 million in total deposits. In addition to assuming all of the deposits Heritage Bank of Nevada agreed to purchase approx. $38 million of the failed bank’s assets.
