CEDAR SPRINGS, Mich. (WOOD) — The FBI and Kent County Sheriff’s Department are offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person who robbed a Cedar Spring bank.
The robbery happened just before 6 p.m. Oct. 16 at the Chase Bank on South Main Street.
Authorities say the suspect showed a black semi-automatic handgun, jumped over the counter and demanded the employees let him into the vault.
While the robber pointed a gun at employees, the bank manager opened the vault door. The suspect put the money in a black backpack and ran, authorities say.
The suspect is described as a black man in his 20s who is 5 feet 9-11 inches tall. He was wearing tennis shoes, gray shorts, blue or purple hooded-sweatshirt, blue face covering and black and gray gloves.
Authorities say the suspect should be considered armed and dangerous.
