(STURGIS) – Sturgis Police are asking for the public's help with their investigation of a bank robbery.

Director Of Public Safety Geoffrey Smith says at approximately 10:25 AM Wednesday, a suspect entered the Sturgis Bank and Trust building at 1001 South Centreville Road. The suspect displayed what is believed to be a weapon and then left the building with an undisclosed amount of money.

The suspect is a black male, 5 feet 7 inches tall with a thin build. He was wearing baggy blue jeans and a baggy hoodie with an unusual design on the back. The suspect was also wearing a blue bandanna across his face with dark sunglasses and the hood was up.

Smith says it's believed a vehicle was involved in the bank
robbery. He says they are looking for a possible GM make, gold or tan colored early 2000's model four door passenger car. It was last seen heading south on South Centreville Road.

Sturgis Police are being assisted by the FBI, the St. Joseph County Sheriff's Department, Michigan State Police and the White Pigeon Police in their investigation.

Sturgis Bank and Trust is offering a reward for information resulting in the apprehension and arrest of the suspect or suspects involved. If anyone has information on this crime, they are asked to call St. Joseph County Central Dispatch at 269-467-4195 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-342-STOP.
