First Interstate Bank robber still at large Tuesday

First Interstate Bank, 2646 E. Barnett Road, in Medford, was robbed Monday evening, and the robber was still at large Tuesday, the Medford Police Department reported.

The robber was described as a white man in his late 30s to early 40s, about 5-feet-9 with a medium build.

The Medford Police Department posted this video image on its Facebook page of the person who robbed the First Interstate Bank branch in the 2600 block of East Barnett Road Monday.

The robber was wearing a green shirt with the word “Starter” on it over a gray hoodie. The man approached the bank from the east and went directly to the first open teller, police said.

Bank video shows the man had a hood over his head, was wearing a pair of sunglasses and had covered his face, said Medford police Lt. Mike Budreau.

Even though it was raining, the man appeared dry. He didn’t appear to be homeless, police said.

“That could indicate that his vehicle or ride was sitting nearby,” Budreau said.

The man didn’t show a weapon to the teller, but demanded the bank employee hand over cash.

“He was rather calm, which would lead us to believe he had committed such robberies before,” according to Budreau.

Even though the man wasn’t wearing gloves, he left no fingerprints or handprints behind.

“He was careful not to touch anything,” Budreau said.

The robber left with the cash in his hand and traveled east when he left the bank, police said.

The robbery occurred near closing time. The branch closes at 5:30 p.m., and the robbery occurred just after 5:25 p.m.

Anyone with information that could help with this crime investigation is asked to call the MPD at 541-770-4783 and refer to case number 21-18469.
