“We are actively looking for the suspect and ask that anyone in the community who sees a male matching the following description call 9-1-1 immediately,” police ask in a press release.
The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, approximately 50 years old, about five-foot-five and skinny. He was wearing a grey and green hoody, blue jeans and a baseball hat. Most notably, the male should have red staining on his skin and clothing (hands, torso, face) as a result of the bank’s dye pack deploying.
At this time, police are asking the community to avoid the immediate area around this bank as we continue to investigate.
