Sioux Falls Bank Robbery Investigation

June 25, 2012, 4:57 PM by Austin Hoffman

Sioux Falls Bank Robbery Investigation
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The Sioux Falls Police Department is searching for the suspect in an armed robbery at the Great Western Bank at 6th Street and Sycamore Avenue.

The sun was just beginning to rise behind then bank when an employee arrived and discovered someone was waiting for her.

"They weren't even open.  That employee was going to open the bank.  We're still working if it was just the one employee or if there were others," Officer Sam Clemens said.

Clemens says the robber used a gun to force the employee inside.  He got cash and took off.

While bank robberies aren't very common in Sioux Falls to begin with, Clemens says this one is set apart because it happened so early in the day.

"Most of the bank robberies we have are usually later or you know usually around noon or later in the evening type of time. We don't really see them that often that happen this early in the morning.  So I would say it's a little unusual," Clemens said.

But investigators were ready.  Within minutes officers from the Sioux Falls Police Department, Minnehaha County Sheriff's Office, FBI, and the South Dakota Highway Patrol surrounded the bank.  They brought in at least one K-9 unit and began the search for an armed bank robber.

The police department describes the suspect as a black male in his mid-20s, 5' 8'' tall and around 145 pounds. If you have any information, you should call the Sioux Falls Police Department at 605-367-7212 or Crime Stoppers at 605-367-7007.
