A man robbed the PNC Bank in Ypsilanti Township on Wednesday afternoon, passing a note to a teller that implied that he had a weapon and leaving with an unknown amount of cash.

Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Derrick Jackson said police are looking for a white man, about 5-feet-5 inches tall with thin build, wearing a black hat, long winter coat, jeans and athletic shoes.

The man robbed the bank at about 2:40 p.m. Wednesday at 2140 Rawsonville Road, Jackson said.

He was last seen on foot heading toward the Rawsonville and Grove Road area, Jackson said.

No weapon was ever seen during the incident and no one was injured in the robbery.

Deputies are still investigating the incident, Jackson said.

Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to call the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office confidential tip line at 734-973-7711.

The picture is so bad it could be a man or a woman. But I believe if I read the article correctly the teller thought it was a man.

The picture looks like it could be a woman's coat. (furry collar) Am wondering if the person and child (to the right) could make a statement on the subject. Glad to hear no one was injured, and hope the suspect will be caught soon.

If you study this picture you will realize that it is a woman, not a man.

Maybe he had a getaway canoe stashed on the river? Did he head upstream or downstream?

I can't believe bank cameras can't get better pictures of robbery suspects these days. I've seen party stores with better camera systems.

My iphone takes better video than that. Why can't banks invest in decent video equipment?


Wed, Feb 1, 2012 : 10:20 p.m.

Why don't you head over to PNC's headquarters and offer to pay for an up graded system.


Wed, Feb 1, 2012 : 9:52 p.m.

But that would be expensive, do you think banks are made of money?


Wed, Feb 1, 2012 : 9:45 p.m.

Just goes to show you a robber can look like anyone, unlike the stereotypical Hollywood version.

What you talking bout Joe?


Wed, Feb 1, 2012 : 9:38 p.m.

I see he brought his own envelope to carry the cash in. I suppose that is one way avoiding planted dye in a bank bag. Hope someone turns him in.
