The Emmet County Sheriff’s Department said it happened about 9:40 a.m. Wednesday at a Citizen’s National Bank branch in Pellston.

Sgt. J.L. Sumpter has released a photo of the robber — a slender white man between 6-foot and 6-foot-3, and 20-30 years old. Sumpter said the robber wore a blue puffy coat, jeans, white shoes, mirror aviator sunglasses, fur bomber hat, and dark camouflage bandanna as a face mask.

Sumpter said the suspect fled a four-door tan-colored sedan, with paint chipped from the front right bumper.

The department asks anyone with information to call 231-439-8901.
