COLUMBIA — Police are investigating a robbery at the Boone County National Bank at 1916 Paris Road. The robbery happened at about 2:30 p.m. Friday.
The robber handed the bank teller a note demanding money, Public Information Officer Latisha Stroer said. The robber ran away with the money he had stolen, but police were not sure which way he went, Stroer said. Police could not disclose the amount of money.
Stroer said the robber was described as a white male, between 5 feet 10 inches tall and 6 feet 1 inch tall. He was estimated to weigh between 160 and 170 pounds. He was described as having scruffy facial hair and wearing a hooded jacket with the hood up. There was no vehicle description.
This is the second bank robbery in Columbia in as many days. Landmark Bank, at 10 N. Garth Ave., was robbed Thursday morning. The robbery prompted lock downs at Grant Elementary School and Douglass High School.
Columbia Police are asking anyone with information about the suspect or his vehicle to contact the department, or call Crimestoppers at 875-TIPS.
