  • A robber waited outside a Bank of the Cascades branch for roughly an hour Friday afternoon, posing as a landscape worker, before he walked inside and confronted a teller with a gun, demanding cash, Medford police say.
    The robbery at the bank at 3100 Crater Lake Highway was reported at about 2:15 p.m. Witnesses told police the man had been outside for about an hour, apparently working on shrubbery surrounding the building near Kaleidoscope Pizzeria and Pub.
    Then he came into the bank, showed a black and gray semi-automatic handgun and ordered bank employees to put money into a duffel bag he carried, police said.
    Three employees were the only other people in the bank at the time of the robbery, police said.
    Police said tellers complied and the robber left with an undisclosed amount of cash. Investigators said he was last seen walking north.No vehicle was seen with him.
    Officers cordoned off the bank and fanned through the surrounding neighborhoods, but didn't find the suspect Friday.
    Witnesses described the robber as a white man in his late 20s to mid 30s, about 6 feet tall with a relatively thin build.
    In surveillance photos, he can be seen wearing black or dark blue jogging pants with a white stripe down each leg, a light-colored jacket open over a white shirt, and a baseball cap. He wore a dust mask covering his face and carried two duffel bags — one camouflage and one black.
    Investigators ask anyone with information related to this case to call Medford police at 541-774-2290.
