Clark said police don’t yet know if the man left on foot or in a vehicle. He remains at large. Police believe the man didn’t have a weapon, Clark said, but officials are waiting for access to the bank’s surveillance video to confirm details of the robbery.
No one was hurt, Clark said. A K-9 officer is on the scene, and the Linn County Sheriff’s Office is providing assistance.
