FBI Seeks Public’s Help to Identify Bank Robber

Paul M. Abbate, Special Agent in Charge of the Detroit Field Office of the FBI, announced that the FBI and local law enforcement are seeking the help of the public in identifying a bank robber suspect. This is a joint investigation between the FBI Kalamazoo Resident Agency and the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities are looking for the individual who robbed the Monarch Community Bank branch on 15975 W. Michigan Avenue in Marshall Township at approximately 2:50 p.m. on the afternoon of Friday, November 29, 2013.

The suspect (as reflected in the picture below) entered the bank with a black laptop computer-style bag and demanded money from a bank teller. The suspect did not reveal a weapon and ran away on foot with an undisclosed amount of money. A dye pack exploded on scene; therefore, it is believed the stolen bills may be stained.

Monarch Community Bank has authorized a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and successful prosecution of this individual. Members of the public should not try to apprehend this suspect. Anyone with information regarding the burglary should contact the FBI Detroit Field Office 24 hours a day at 313-965-2323 or Calhoun County Sheriff’s detectives at 269-781-0880.
