Officials searching for man connected to Riley robbery

Sunday, September 12, 2010

This photo is of a man currently wanted in connection to an armed bank robbery Saturday at the Terre Haute Savings Bank in Riley.
RILEY-- Terre Haute officials received a 911 call at approximately 11:02 a.m., from the Terre Haute Savings Bank in Riley Saturday advising of an armed bank robbery.

The caller stated that a white male entered the bank, displayed a handgun and demanded cash.

Witnesses stated the suspect vehicle entered the parking lot from the east and later fled east on State Road 46 toward Clay County.

Witnesses described the suspect vehicle as a late 90s to early 2000s Ford pickup, maroon with a tan or champagne bottom. The vehicle had noticeable road dirt and dust along the sides. One witness said the truck may have had a paper plate on the back. However, police do not want to rule out vehicles with permanent license plates.

The suspect was described as a white male in his mid-30s, approximately 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10, and 180 pounds. He has medium brown neck length hair, and a goatee.

The suspect appeared to have facial "pock marks," or light acne.

The suspect was wearing sunglasses, a trucker-style cap with a dirty white front and green bill. He had a gray T-shirt with a blue canvas overshirt with red plaid lining and blue jeans. He brandished a dark colored semi-automatic handgun.

Detectives are asking businesses in the Riley area, as well as the western Clay County area to check their video surveillance systems for similar vehicles around that time period. The suspect is considered armed and dangerous.

Persons with information should contact their local police immediately, or call 911.

Sounds to me like you were there....or maybe you are him! Huh!

Yes, any person that is the slighest bit familiar with primary colors would know that it appears from this angle that the top of the bill of his hat is blue. I am currently wearing a safety yellow colored ball cap and the underside of the bill is dark green! Maybe, just maybe that is what the people remember or saw since it appears that his hat may be tipped up just a bit, the color of the underside of his cap Mr. Perfect! If all you are going to do is critisize, shut up!

Small world. Found out today that this guy is the ex-husband (for obvious reasons) of someone I know. WOW. I really thought it was Kevin Spacey, too.
