Bank robber makes off with undisclosed amount of cash

Suspect may have entered a gold passenger vehicle

DANVILLE — Danville police are investigating an armed robbery of a local bank that occurred mid-morning Monday.

Public Safety Director Larry Thomason said police were notified of the robbery by an alarm system at about 10:35 a.m.

Officers arriving at the First Midwest Bank, 27 N. Vermilion St., found that a lone gunman had entered the bank, displayed a small firearm and demanded money.

“He was given an undisclosed amount of cash and left the bank through the west doors,” Thomason said. “No one in the bank was injured and the doors were locked immediately after his exit.”

The robber was described as a white male in his late 30s to early 40s, standing about 5-foot, 10-inches tall and wearing a black baseball style cap, sunglasses, dark colored tank top and camouflage trousers with large pockets.

Thomason said the suspect was later believed to have been seen entering a gold-colored passenger vehicle and going east on North Street.

Police have surveillance footage of the suspect and people are asked to look closely to determine if they know the individual.

Danville police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are investigating the case and anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Danville Police at 431-2250 or use Crimestoppers, which offers a reward, at 446-TIPS.
