KETTERING, Ohio (WDTN) – The River Valley Credit Union near Town & Country Shopping Center was robbed Tuesday morning at 9:15.
Lt. T.R. Smart of the Kettering Police Department says a suspect entered the bank Tuesday morning before 9:20 and handed a note to a telling saying, “I want to cash this.”
The note said “Robbery” at the top and also said, “twenties, fifties, and hundreds, no alarms.” Smart told 2 NEWS nothing else was said by the suspect. He then left the bank through the front door and fled into a neighborhood. A police K9 lost his trail near Shroyer Road.
The suspect kept his hand in his pocket but not show or claim to have a weapon.
The suspect was described as a tall black male, approximately 50 years of age, with a goatee and black thick-framed glasses. He was wearing a yellow rain coat. The suspect left the business on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.
A track was attempted with the assistance of a Dayton Police K9 unit, but did not yield further information.
Any person with information that may assist in this case are requested to contact Det. James Bodner at 937-296-2519
