|Lead Investigator/Agency:||Detective Jason Wood / Columbus Police Robbery Squad|
On Saturday, April 21, 2012, at approximately 1:25 pm, a man wearing a grey hoodie with a red stripe down the sides, entered the Chase Bank, 1500 W. Fifth Avenue, Columbus, and ordered a bank teller to give him money. The teller hesitated so the robber stated that he wasn’t joking and wanted cash. The robber lifted up his hoodie to reveal something tucked at his waist. The teller wasn’t sure if it was a weapon, but removed money from her drawer and gave it to the robber. The robber took off out of the bank with the loot. The robber was described as a white male, approximately late 30’s – 40’s of age, 5’10”, medium build, with short, brown hair, wearing a grey hoodie with red stripes down the sides, blue jeans, and white tennis shoes. The robber had his hoodie up through most of the robbery, but at one point the hoodie came down, revealing a better look at his face.
