AUBURN, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) - Indiana State Police are looking for help locating a suspect in a bank robbery at the Farmers & Merchants State Bank in Auburn.

Police say they were called to the bank, located at 403 Erie Pass, around 10 a.m. on Thursday on reports of a bank robbery. When police arrived, they say they discovered that the suspect had already fled the area with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Detectives describe the suspect as a man in his mid to late 20′s who is 6′3″, wearing a red athletic style jacket and pants, a black ball cap, and a black mask. They say he left in a silver passenger car.

They say the man handed a note to a teller saying he was armed and demanded money, but a weapon was not displayed. After fleeing the building, police say they believe he traveled westbound on Erie Pass. There were no injuries reported in the incident, however, police say the suspect is considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone that may have information on the robbery is asked to call the Indiana State Police Fort Wayne Post at (260)-432-8661 (option 8) and ask for Detective(s) Jake Quick or Clint Hetrick.
