Police search for bank robber

Police are searching for the suspect in a bank robbery Friday at the U.S. Bank on Southwest Sixth St. in Grants Pass.

Officers with the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety responded to the robbery at about 5 p.m., but the suspect had fled by the time of their arrival.

The suspect, who is believed to be about 5-foot-7 with short brown hair and mustache and in his early 40s, entered the bank wearing a mask and black hooded jacket with the hood pulled over his head, according to police.

He jumped over the counter and robbed an undisclosed amount of money from the tellers, but he did not show a weapon, police said. He, then, fled out the rear doors of the bank.

Officers searched for him in the area and found the mask and some money he had dropped during his getaway. They did not find the suspect.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call detectives with the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety at 541-474-6370.
