Last updated on Tuesday, July 1, 2008

(PARAGON) - Police in Morgan County are hunting for a man they say knocked over a bank in Paragon yesterday morning.

According to a report published in the Bloomington Herald Times, the People's State Bank on IN-67 in Paragon was robbed a little after 10:00am yesterday, but the robber reportedly did not present a weapon.

Morgan County and state police reports say a man walked into the bank wearing a camouflage mask that covered most of his face and demanded money. When the teller handed over the undisclosed amount, the man reportedly threw it into the back of a vehicle and drove off.

Police describe the man as African American, 6-feet tall, about 180 pounds wearing a light blue sweatshirt and gray sweatpants, and may have had up to two caucasian men helping him.

Anyone with information is asked to call Morgan County authorities at (765) 342-5544.
