FBI Searching For Suspect After Prior Lake Bank Robbed

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Minneapolis branch of the FBI is looking for a suspect after a U.S. Bank in Prior Lake was robbed Saturday afternoon.

The incident happened at about 12:10 p.m. at the U.S. Bank located on the 15000 block of Franklin Trail SE in Prior Lake, according to FBI officials. They said the bank was robbed by a lone, white male. He entered the bank and approached a teller counter while talking on a cell phone.

When he got to the counter, the man demanded money. After receiving an undisclosed amount of money, the robber fled the bank on foot.

Authorities describe the suspect as a white male in his mid-20s, about 5 feet, 8 to 5 feet, 9 inches tall with a medium build. The suspect had short, black hair and appeared to be unshaven. He was wearing a black shirt, faded camouflage pants, a brown jacket, black baseball cap and mirrored sunglasses at the time of the robbery.

Anyone with information about the incident or who might be able to identify the  suspect is asked to call the Minneapolis FBI at (612) 376-3200.

    This is why I don’t understand why they don’t have armed ‘bank police’ or ‘armed guards’ inside of every single bank across the nation. Hell, they have 2 armed guards inside of armored vehicles so why don’t they have a pair inside of each bank? Target has loss prevention guys that stand at the door with handcuffs so why can’t banks do this except with armed guards? After all, banks have the most money.
