COMSTOCK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Authorities in Kalamazoo County are looking for the man who robbed a bank at gunpoint and then forced employees into the vault.
It happened around 11:40 a.m. Tuesday at the Comerica Bank in the 5900 block of King Highway, near River Street, in Comstock Township, according to the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office.
A man carrying a silver semiautomatic handgun entered the bank, ordered workers to give him money, and then forced them into the vault, authorities say.
He then took off with an undisclosed amount of cash. A Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety K-9 tracked the suspect to a parking lot southwest of the bank, but then lost the trail.
The suspect was described as a black man between 5-foot-10 and 6-foot with a thin build. He wore a black hooded sweatshirt, light gray sweatpants with a double stripe down the leg and a dark-colored mask.
Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 269.383.8723, the FBI at 269.349.9607, or Silent Observer at 269.343.2100.
