Austintown bank robbed


Township police are searching for the suspect in a bank robbery this morning.

Capt. Bryan Kloss said a man entered First Place Bank, 3516 S. Meridian Road, when the doors opened at 9 a.m. today. He handed the teller an envelope with a note that read, “I have a gun. Give me your money.”

Kloss said the teller took money from her drawer and handed it to him. He then fled from the bank.

The suspect is described as a white male between 50-and-60-years-old, 5 feet 10 inches, about 180 pounds with short and partially greying hair.

Kloss said he was wearing a black and yellow jacket, black hat and white sneakers.

Police continue to investigate. Anyone with information should call the Austintown Police Department at 330-799-9721.

Bank employees are trained to look for stuff like that AND the informaton in the article probably came from the bank's cameras.

Stores and muggings don't usually have a tape to review for evidence!

I often wonder why the FBI cannot release photos from the videotapes in many of these robberies. Pictures are worth a thousand words, the old saying goes and I am sure someone out there would recognize the individual's photo rather than by a discription.
