LOCKPORT — Police are searching for an elderly “well-dressed” robber who struck at a bank Tuesday morning.
Lt. Dave Draksler said it 9:38 a.m. when the first customer of the day walked into Standard Bank, 16545 159th St., approached a teller and showed her he was carrying a small black handgun and a black bag.
He told the teller to put all her money in the bag and showed her a note, Draksler said. No one was injured in the robbery.
Surveillance footage shows the suspect is a white man between 60 and 70 years old and 5 feet 10 inches tall. He was wearing a fedora, silver-rimmed sunglasses, a black suit and tie.
Police were unsure what specific car the robber used as a getaway vehicle, but noted a white or silver car left the area right after the man walked out.
There have been no other recent bank robberies in Lockport
“This is the first bank robbery (in the city) that I can recall investigating,” Draksler, a 25-year-veteran, said.
The FBI is assisting police with the investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at 815-838-2132.
