Galbraith Road bank branch robbed again

        NORTH COLLEGE HILL — An armed bank robber stole an undisclosed amount of money Saturday morning from the Bank One branch in the 1500 block of West Galbraith Road.

        This was the second time since January that the branch was robbed.

        Officer Keith Gardner said police are looking for a man who entered the bank about 9:20 a.m. and demanded money.

        The man, whose age has not been disclosed, was armed with a revolver and was dressed in dark blue coveralls. He wore latex gloves and a latex “Michael Myers” mask.

        Tellers put the cash, along with dye packs, in a blue plastic grocery bag. The man tripped and fell before running from the bank and driving away in a small white car.

        Hours later, police found clothing and other items now under investigation.

        To leave an anonymous tip, call CrimeStoppers, 352-3040.
