NORMAN — Law enforcement officers are searching for a suspect after a Norman bank was robbed today.

At approximately 11:49 a.m., a lone black male approached the teller counter at the Bank of Oklahoma Branch located inside the Homeland Grocery Store, 2600 W. Robinson St.

The subject passed a note to the teller indicating he was armed and demanding money. The teller complied and the subject placed an undisclosed amount of money inside a folded newspaper.

The subject then departed from the bank and was last observed riding a bicycle south from the Homeland Store. No one was injured in the robbery.

Surveillance photos and witness descriptions depict the subject as follows:

Black male, approximately 50 years old, 5’10”, 150 pounds, thin build, wearing a dark colored jacket, plaid shirt with a white collar, a baseball style cap with a white design on the front and wearing sunglasses.

The robbery is being investigated by the FBI and the Norman Police Department. The subject is believed to be the same individual that robbed the Communication Federal Credit Union at 300 12th Ave. SE in Norman on Feb. 1.

Anyone with information regarding this robbery should contact the FBI at 405-290-7770 (24-hour number). You may remain anonymous. The Oklahoma Banker’s Association offers a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and/or conviction of anyone robbing a member bank.
