Police said the man implied he had a weapon as he passed a hold-up note to the teller at Belmont Bank and Trust, 1958 West Division at 1:04 p.m. on August 28. He got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

According to the FBI, the robber is a White or Hispanic man who stands 5’6” to 5’8” tall. He has a small build, black hair, and wore his right arm in a sling.
