Cape Girardeau police and the FBI are searching for a suspect in the Thursday morning robbery of the Bank of Missouri, 1622 N. Kingshighway.

Patrolman Darin Hickey, spokesman for the Cape Girardeau Police Department, said officers responded to an alarm at the bank at about 10:20 a.m. Upon arriving, they found that a robber had entered the bank and demanded money. While no weapon was displayed, the robber left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money.

According to information provided by the FBI, the robber is a white male about six feet tall, and could be from 40 to 50 years old. He was wearing a camouflaged baseball cap, a blue Nike jacket on top of a gray hoodie, dark pants and white tennis shoes.

Kristen Klaus, senior marketing director at the Bank of Missouri, said all deposits at the bank were safe and the bank would be open for business Friday at its regular time. She directed customers Thursday to three other Bank of Missouri locations so authorities could continue their investigation..

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to contact the police department at 335-6621; Cape Girardeau Crime Stoppers at 339-6312; the Federal Bureau of Investigation at 335-2511; or local law enforcement.

I do hope he is found this is not a good sign for Cape Girardeau

We have cameras on satellites that can read a license plate for 200 miles away. Police cars have dash cameras with resolution so good you can read the badge number on the cop. Why are bank photos always so incredibly poor? Why bother having a camera if this is the quality of the photo?

These are freeze frames from video cameras. Banks quit using still cameras years ago. (They tended to make noise, i.e., whir, click click if the robbery button was pushed.) I think they need to publicize the video clip, especially since everybody looking at this on the internet might accidentally recognize this guy.

So anyone can walk into a bank, display no weapon, demand cash and make out like a bandit. Why not just tell him no?

Also a remotely operated trap door in front of the teller would be nice too.
