Police seek bank robber

At 10:49 a.m. today, Oct. 27, Bank Midwest at 1111 Main St. was robbed, and police are seeking the suspect, captured on surveillance camera above.

The suspect was milling around the lobby area of the bank when the teller asked him if he had any business to conduct. He approached the teller's window, took a folded napkin from his pocket and unfolded it. He took a hand-written note out of the napkin and held it out to her. The note said to "give me the money". In an effort to stall him, she asked him what denominations he wanted. He said hundreds, so she gave him the money in a white bank envelope. He turned and calmly exited through the revolving doors onto Main Street.

If you have any information, please call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (8477).
