The subject, who appeared to have tactical training, is described as a white male, approximately 6” tall, with a thin build. He was wearing a black shirt or pullover, blue jeans, and a black ski mask. He rode a bicycle to the bank and left the scene in a bank employee’s vehicle, which was found abandoned nearby.
