The suspect left on foot with an undisclosed amount of money. He dropped a few bills on the lawn of a neighboring business as he was running northwest from the bank.

Officers used police dogs to set up a perimeter to catch the man, but his scent disappeared.

The suspect is described as a black man, around 6-foot-2-inches tall, 180 pounds with black hair and a thin black beard.

He was wearing a transparent Halloween mask, grey knitted beanie, black gloves, a light-colored long-sleeved collared shirt with stripes, grey khaki pants and white shoes.
