Springfield police are investigating a bank robbery that took place on Villa Road.
Law enforcement responded to New Carlisle Federal Savings Bank Wednesday at around 5 p.m. after employees alerted officials of a robbery, a Springfield police report says.
“(The witness) stated that the suspect put a note on her counter that said ‘robbery’ and ‘I have a gun,’” the report says. “(The witness) gave the suspect the money from her drawer.”
The woman stated that the suspect had a tattoo of a clock on the top of his left hand and was wearing dark sunglasses with shaggy hair.
The suspect wasn’t finished robbing the bank, the report says. After taking money from the first teller’s drawer he then turned his attention to another.
“He asked (the teller) what she was doing when she began to get up from her chair,” the report says. “She stated that she wasn’t doing anything. He then stated ‘Give me all of yours too.’ (The teller) then gave him the money in her drawer. He then stated ‘I want all of it.’”
The teller told the man that he got all of it. The report says the man collected the note and then left through the front door of the bank and was last seen heading southbound.
“No firearm was seen during this robbery but the suspect did have his hands in the pocket of his hoodie like he had a weapon,” the report says. “K-9 units from other agencies responded to check the area for the suspect, but he was unable to be located.”
Springfield police collected evidence at the scene, the report says, and it is an ongoing investigation.
