FBI Searching for Man Who Robbed Lawton Bank

LAWTON Okla_ Police are searching for a bank robber Friday, after a man held up the First National Bank and Trust in Lawton, at Northwest 67th and Quanah Parker Trailway.

7News Reporter Sarah Jensen has been on the scene trying to gather information from authorities. A little before 3:00PM, police were called here on reports of a robbery.

The scene has been active since we arrived. Police scanners reported when police arrived at the scene, the suspect was no longer on the premises. Witnesses say that the man ran from the front entrance of the bank. He was going west toward Laugh Out Loud. He got into a vehicle and was last seen headed east.

Police have just released some images from the surveillance camera. The description of the robber we've been given is a man between the ages of 40 and 50 with tan colored skin. He is about 5'8" tall and 160 lbs.

At the time of the robbery, he was wearing a ball cap and blue tinted sunglasses. He is believed to be in a blue or silver Ford truck and could be armed with the semi automatic weapon believed to have been used in the robbery.

The FBI is advising that anyone that may know something about the robbery should contact 405-290-7770. The investigation is still ongoing, and we will bring you more information as we have it.
