June 12th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

The Fremont County Sheriff’s Department is asking for your help in locating a man suspected of robbing a bank Monday morning, in Hamburg. At around 9:25-a.m., an approximately 30-year old black male entered the Great Western Bank in Hamburg, approached the teller, and demanded a plastic bag be filled with money. No weapon was displayed during the incident.

The suspect, who was described as being anywhere from 5-feet 6-inches to five-feet 8-inches tall, had a dark complexion, and was wearing: a white visor, aviator-style sunglasses…a white t-shirt…blue jeans, and white tennis shoes. He is believed to have left the scene with an undetermined amount of cash.

It’s thought he may have gotten away in a dark green, mid-90’s model 4-door Cadillac, with a tan vinyl top. The vehicle was last seen turning south on Interstate 29 at the Hamburg exit, shortly after the incident took place. Anyone with information about the incident, is asked to call the Fremont County Crimestoppers hotline, at 1-800-432-9240. You can remain anonymous, and still be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
