A bank robbery suspect is still on the loose, according to information from Detective Michael Benjamin of the Batesville Police Department.

Last week on Wednesday, October 27 about 9:26 a.m. the Batesville Police Department received a 911 call from FCN Bank reporting an armed robbery had just taken place.
“The teller did exactly as she was supposed to,” Detective Benjamin told the Osgood Journal. He said no one was hurt in the incident.

Det. Benjamin said upon arrival police learned that a white male had come into the bank, walked up to a teller holding a note. The note said he had a weapon and he was robbing the bank.

The robber, wearing a mask, got away with an undisclosed amount of money, according to police.

If anyone has any information regarding the incident, they are encouraged to contact the Batesville Police Department at 812-934-3131.

The suspect was described as being a white male about 6 feet tall with a thin build. At the time of the robbery, he was wearing a Halloween style mask with white silky cloth connected to the sides and back. He had on a blue long sleeved sweater with a white tee shirt underneath, light colored khaki pants, and dark colored shoes with light colored socks.

Officers from the Indiana State Police, Franklin and Ripley County sheriff’s offices assisted Batesville officers in the search, which lasted for several hours. However, they were not able to locate the suspect.
