Bank robber still at large

The robber who wore all blue clothing and a blue Band Aid on his large rounded nose when he stole cash from Bank of America on Kingsbury Grade Sept. 26 is still at large.

“We are still working on the case diligently, following up on all leads,” said Douglas County Sheriff’s Investigator Aaron Crawford. “Anytime we have something like that we look into it for quite a long time. We don’t just throw our hands up. It’s an ongoing investigation.”

A bank robbery is considered a federal crime. As a result the FBI is also investigating the incident. A security camera inside the bank caught the crime on videotape. It showed that around 3:20 p.m. Sept. 26 a white male slipped a note to a teller who was six-months pregnant. No witnesses saw a weapon on the man.

The robber went out the front door with the cash and ran behind the building toward stores north of the bank. The white male is believed to be 35 to 38 years old, 5 foot 10 inches, with shoulder length brown hair. He was wearing a blue jacket, blue pants, a blue baseball cap with a logo.

No injuries occurred during the robbery, but one employee did faint. Anyone with information about crime is asked to call Douglas County Sheriff’s Department at (775) 586-7250 or (775) 782-9905.
