NORMAN, Okla.—While officers were attempting to find an escaped inmate, a man allegedly robbed a bank inside a Norman grocery store across town.
Around 11:50 a.m. Monday, authorities say a man walked up to the teller with a note at the Bank of Oklahoma branch, inside the Homeland grocery store.
The note told the teller that he was armed and demanded money.
The teller handed the money to the man, which he hid inside a folded newspaper.
While he got away from the scene, he was captured on surveillance video inside the bank.
Witnesses say the robber is a black man, around 50-years-old, standing 5’10” tall and weighing 150 pounds.
He is said to have a thin build and was wearing a dark-colored jacket, plaid shirt with a white collar, a baseball cap and eyeglasses.
Authorities believe this may be the same suspect who robbed the Communication Federal Credit Union earlier this month.
If you have any information about the robbery, call the FBI at (405) 290-7770.
The Oklahoma Banker’s Association is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for information that led to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the crime.
