On Jan. 18, around 4:30 p.m., Bangor police officers responded to the Penobscot County Federal Credit Union at 1 Merchants Plaza to the report of a bank robbery.
Officers were on scene within seconds but a lone male suspect was able to escape on foot.
The suspect, pictured, is described as a Caucasian male, 5-foot8-inches to 5-foot11-inches, thin build, teens to early-mid twenties, and clean shaven, although he appeared to have blonde growth of a beard maybe one or two days old. He was wearing a white long sleeve sweatshirt with “Billabong,” written on it, black sunglasses, black gloves and blue jeans.
The suspect was tracked by one of the department’s K-9 units in the downtown area and the track was eventually suspended in the area of Union and High Streets. The department’s Evidence Response Team has collected evidence and the FBI is also working the case with us.
No one was injured and an undisclosed amount of cash was taken.
Anyone with information as to the identity of this suspect is urged to call the Bangor Police Department at 947-7382 and if you wish to remain anonymous, please press 6 to utilize the Tip Line.
