Police were able to obtain surveillance video from the bank and say they have been constantly reviewing it, and hope that a recently made discovery could possibly help catch the suspect. Schwertfeger said, "Upon further review of some of the video footage, we had originally given a description of a green hoodie, it appears that the subject was actually wearing a green coat with a gray hoodie. So if that would maybe jar some memories as far as witnesses and so forth. We're certainly working hard to continue to investigate this and I'm confident that we'll have a positive outcome in the end."

The robbery occurred last Tuesday, March 25, around 1 p.m. The suspect is a young, white male who escaped by running up 12th Street, then jumped a wooden fence between Ernie's Cork and Bottle, and the bank, and ran through a parking lot to Market Street.
