Authorities in western Iowa are on the lookout for a man who robbed a bank in Cass County early this (Tuesday) morning. The sheriff says a little before 8 A.M. a white man nearly 6 feet tall and perhaps 170 pounds walked into the First National Bank in Anita, brandishing a handgun that may have been 38- or 45-caliber. He fired it during the incident, but no one was injured. Authorities suspect the weapon may have been loaded with blanks.
The man was wearing camouflage fatigues, wire-rimmed glasses, and reportedly had “bushy” hair. Witnesses say he left in a late 1980s red four-door Oldsmobile. The bank was locked down this morning as authorities investigated.
