According to the Polk County Sheriff's Department, a masked gunman entered the bank and demanded money around 10 a.m. that day. The suspect, believed to be a white adult male with average height and a thin build, displayed a handgun and threatened bank staff as he helped himself to the tellers' cash drawers.
There were no other customers in the bank at the time of the incident. The suspect obtained an undisclosed amount of cash.
Authorities believe the suspect fled the area in a red Chevrolet (possibly GMC) full-size pickup truck. The pickup had some body rust, may have had a silver stripe or silver trim on the side, and is a mid-1990s model year.
