Officials say a male suspect entered the bank and passes a note to a teller announcing a robber but no weapon was displayed. He was last seen running west with bank proceeds towards a TGI Fridays restaurant.

The suspect is described as a hispanic or asian male in his mid 20’s to early 30’s, approximately 5’5 tall, with a thin build and goatee, wearing a black jacket, gray sweatpants and sunglasses.

Four area elementary schools in the immediate area of the bank were placed on a modified lockdown as a precaution. The schools were the Ronald L. Meinders Primary Learning Center, McKinley Avenue School, Stafford Intermediate School and All Saints Regional Catholic School.

Police say a search of the area by police including two k9 search teams did not locate the subject.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Frank Heim of the Stafford Township Police Detective Bureau at 609-597-1189 ext. 8296 or the Stafford Township Police Tips Line at 609-597-1189 ext TIPS (8477).
