BETHANY, Okla. – Agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation are searching for a man who allegedly robbed a bank in Bethany on Tuesday.

Authorities say they were called to the Homeland Grocery around 10:45 a.m. after learning about an alleged robbery at the Bank of Oklahoma inside the store.

Witnesses say the suspect walked up to the teller and said, “This is a robbery. Give me all your money.”

At that time, officials say the man flashed what is believed to have been a silver handgun.

He was last seen leaving with the money on foot, heading eastbound from the store.

Witnesses described the alleged suspect as a white man, in his mid-30s, standing 5’7″ to 5’8″ and weighing 160 pounds.

They say he has a medium build and brown hair.

He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and white tennis shoes.

He also wore a red bandana over his face.

Authorities say they believe this is the same person who robbed the same bank on Dec. 18, 2013.
