Police release video of armed East Prospect bank robbery, offer reward for tips
State police are asking the public to watch a video of an East Prospect bank robbery, in the hope someone will recognize the gun-wielding robber.
A reward of as much as $2,000 is now being offered for information that leads to the man's arrest and conviction, police said. The video was prepared by the FBI, according to state police.
Susquehanna Bank at 1 S. Main St. was robbed about 10:05 a.m. Friday, April 24, police said.
The robber brandished a two-tone handgun and ordered tellers to put cash in a white-and-gray plaid pillowcase he brought with him, police said.
He ordered all the bank employees to face away from him and to remain in that position until after he left, according to police.
The robber left the bank and fled on foot, heading northbound, with a large amount of cash, police said.
He didn't fire his weapon and no one was injured during the holdup, according to Trooper Rob Hicks, a state police spokesman.
Anyone who recognizes the robber, or who has information about the holdup, is asked to call Pennsylvania Crime Stoppers at (800) 4PA-TIPS. Callers can remain anonymous, police said.
