A $1,000 reward has been offered in exchange for information leading to the arrest of the man who robbed a Durham bank Thursday, prompting a "secure lockout mode" at local schools.
State police said a man in a "Coors Light" baseball cap robbed the Liberty Bank at 357 Main Street shortly before 2 p.m. Thursday. He got away with an undisclosed amount of money, and troopers and K-9s failed to track him down.
Durham Supt. Kathryn Y. Veronesi said all public schools in town were placed in "secure school lockout" for 10 minutes while police responded to the bank.
The Connecticut Bankers Reward Association is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the robber's arrest.
Police described him as a man in his early to mid-30s, about 6 feet tall, with an athletic build and some facial hair. He was wearing a blue-and-white baseball cap with a Coors Light logo on the front, along with a blue striped long-sleeved button-down shirt, light-colored cargo shorts and athletic sneakers.
He left the scene on foot before getting into a green, older-model sedan, according to state police.
Anyone with information is asked to call State Police Troop F at 860-399-2100 or contact Det. Patrick Dwyer at 860-250-6817. Calls will remain confidential.
