Hamilton Robbery

The FBI is helping with the investigation after a lone bank robber hit Bank Northwest in Hamilton yesterday.

An FBI spokeswoman tells us it happened just before 3:30 in the afternoon when a man came in wearing a motorcycle helmet and a white cloth over his mouth. He had a gun, demanded money from a teller, took an undisclosed amount then fled. Investigators say the pickup he was in turns out to be stolen and was found nearby. The suspect is described as a white man, about 5 foot 10 inches tall and 180 to 190 pounds. The FBI says no shots were fired and no one was injured in the holdup.
