Several tips have been called in to police in connection with Marquette County’s Chocolay Township hold up at the Northern Michigan Bank and Trust in Harvey Wednesday afternoon, but the suspect has not yet been found.
Authorities are now looking for help from someone who was in the bank parking lot around the time of the robbery. They want to talk to the driver of a gray or silver SUV type vehicle that was in the parking lot between 1:10 and 1:20 p.m. The robbery happened at 1:15 p.m.
One vehicle of interest has been located. Preliminary interviews have been conducted with the occupants of a blue Ford pickup truck pulling a fifth wheel camper. Additional questioning is expected.
Police told ABC 10 the man pictured walked into the branch at the Gateway Plaza. He approached a teller and calmly instructed her to fill up a bag he put on the counter. She responded, “Yeah, right.” He then brandished a black pistol. The teller began putting money into the bag and then asked the man if he wanted more money. He responded, “No, that’s enough.”
Bank employees say the man left the bank on foot, heading north with an undisclosed amount of money.
If you have any information about the suspect, or the vehicle of interest, contact your local police agency or call 911.
