The man who robbed a Cloverdale Bank earlier today remains at large, authorities said.
A lone suspect entered the Cloverdale branch of the First National Bank at 1000 N. Main St. at about 10:20 a.m. According to a news release from the bank, the suspect, a male, was "brandishing a semi-automatic handgun," which a release from the Indiana State Police said he pointed at a teller.
The suspect escaped northbound on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash. Bank chief operations officer and Vice President Todd Lewis declined to say how much money was stolen.
Officers from the Indiana State Police Criminal Investigations Division conducted preliminary investigation.
The robber was described as a white male, 5 feet, 10 inches to 6 feet tall and weighing approximately 180 pounds. He was wearing a blue-green raincoat, white tee shirt, blue v-neck shirt and blue jeans. Bank employees were unable to give a description of the thief's face, as he was also wearing a camouflage mask. He was also carrying a black bag.
Officers from the Cloverdale Police Department, Putnam County Sheriff's Department and Indiana State Police canvassed the area around the bank for some time after the robbery, but were unable to locate the suspect.
Officers at the Putnamville Post of the Indiana State Police are preparing video surveillance photos. That information will be released as soon as it becomes available.
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the Indiana State Police at 653-4114 or (800) 225-8576.
