Authorities are seeking the public’s help in finding a bank robber after an incident in Bartholomew County.

According to the Clifford Volunteer Fire Department, on Monday February 4, 2019, just before 2:30pm, Bartholomew County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to Centra Credit Union, 1170 N US 31 to a reported bank robbery.

The suspect on the run is approximately 5 foot 6 inches tall, 180 pounds, was wearing dark pants, a gray hoodie, a black jacket and a black ball cap.

Within minutes the criminal’s vehicle was found burned and abandoned

During the Taylorsville, Indiana robbery, he had a scarf covering his face and he was wearing glasses.

Just after 2:30, this suspect left in a gold colored passenger car which was later found fully engulfed on Tannehill Road.

First Responders were notified of this car fire near County Road 280 West and the car is believed to be the Pontiac used in the Centra robbery.

However, there was nobody around as the vehicle was abandoned.

An undisclosed amount of money was taken from the Credit Union, but luckily no one was injured and a weapon was not displayed.

Law enforcement is currently following several leads and anyone with any information, no matter how seemingly insignificant, should contact:
