The Lincoln City branch of Wells Fargo bank was robbed at gunpoint Saturday, Dec. 11, Lincoln City police say.

Members of the Lincoln City Police Department responded to a report of an armed robbery at about 10:50 a.m. According to the police investigation, a white male suspect walked into the bank and approached a teller. He displayed a semi-automatic handgun and demanded money from the teller who gave him an undisclosed amount of money. After taking the money from the teller, the suspect fled the bank on foot. No one was injured during the robbery.

The suspect is described as mid-40s to mid-50s with a medium build, ruddy complexion and gray hair, wearing light colored pants, a light or gray colored vest over a similarly colored long-sleeve shirt and a dark-colored baseball cap, and carrying a black bag and a black semi-automatic pistol.

Lincoln City police and the FBI are investigating.

When asked if the suspect might be a person of interest in any other area robberies, LCPD Sgt. Jeff Winn said: "I have not heard of anybody matching this description hitting any other banks or businesses that I know of. The FBI didn't indicate the description matched anything they're working on [either]."

Anyone who thinks they see someone matching the suspect's description is asked to call 911 as the suspect is believed to be armed. Anyone with information or who might have witnessed the robbery is asked to call police at 541-994-3636.

    Good work on the bank robbery. Maybe the News-Times will begin updating their site during the week too. One can only hope.
