Law officers are still on the lookout for the man who held up the bank in Gilmore City at gun point on Wednesday afternoon. The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office reports the suspect entered Bank Iowa shortly before two p-m, displayed a gun and demanded money.
He left with an undisclosed amount of money. The suspect is described as 5-feet 6-inches tall with dark hair, wearing a red New York Yankees baseball hat. His face was covered by a red bandana. He was wearing a long-sleeved t-shirt with a black baggy shirt over it, with blue jeans and dark tennis shoes.
A vehicle called a “possible suspect vehicle” left Gilmore City southbound on P-19 to the first gravel road and headed westbound toward Pocahontas County. It was described as a teal or green Chrysler Town and Country minivan. The vehicle entered several ditches and corn fields as it fled.
Vehicle tracks led to the Lizard Lake area in Pocahontas County.
