Medford police search for bank robbery suspect
Medford police were searching Tuesday for a bank robber who held up Banner Bank, 1455 E. McAndrews Road, Medford, at 10:18 a.m.
A suspect appearing to be a male in his mid 20s and described as 5-feet-5 with a thin build walked into the bank and reportedly passed a bank teller a note demanding money, according to Medford police Lt. Mike Budreau.
The suspect wore a gray, oversized zip-up hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, a red baseball cap, and “oversized sunglasses,” according to a Medford police Facebook post.
Whether the suspect obtained cash was not immediately available, nor was any information about a weapon being used.
“I don’t believe a weapon was brandished, but I’m not sure if one was implied,” Budreau said.
At some point, the suspect fled from the bank and traveled east. The suspect was later spotted getting into the passenger seat of a dark-colored Chrysler 300 near Corona Avenue.
No one was hurt.
It was the first Medford bank robbery of 2019, Budreau said
Area residents were asked to keep an eye out and check surveillance cameras if they can.
