Bank robber sought by Jamestown police

JAMESTOWN -- City police are searching for a bank robber who struck the M&T Bank branch on Foote Avenue Monday morning, according to reports.

Police said the bank was robbed at about 11:15 a.m. by a black male between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-10 who wore a tan colored shirt with a possible military insignia on the front.

Police believe the individual may have been in the bank at about 10 a.m. conducting his own surveillance before robbing it.

After robbing the bank teller of an undisclosed sum of cash, the suspect fled out the front door and jogged past the bank drive-through and behind a Mobil gas station.

Police said the insignia on the robber's shirt was orange or yellow and possibly matched the "airborne assault" insignia with wings and a scull or a parachute. The man also wore faded blue jeans and a camouflaged baseball cap.

Anyone with information was encouraged to contact Jamestown police at 483-7531.
