Meanwhile, St. Therese Catholic School was put on lock-down, according to scanner traffic.
The bank reported a robbery Oct. 26. In that case, employees said they arrived to work at around 8 a.m. and were approached by two males who were dressed in dark hooded sweat shirts while wearing black masks over their faces who forced them inside the bank. Both robbers had handguns. They demanded cash before leaving in an unknown direction, according to a police report.
Foster said the city has had 14 bank robberies in the past year. Police suspect because most of the robberies are similar – approaching an employee who is forced to enter the bank – that they have been robbed by the same people. Foster said because today's robbery was nothing like the others, it is unlikely related to any others.
Foster said police hope to have surveillance footage of the robber later Thursday.
