School locked after bank robbed



The Cincinnati Enquirer

AMELIA - An elementary school was locked down Tuesday afternoon while police searched for a man who had robbed a nearby bank.

Officials are still looking for the masked man who entered First Clermont Bank, 5 W. Main St., around 3 p.m., showed a semi-automatic handgun and demanded money. He ran north and to the rear of Amelia Elementary School.

The robber was a white male, 25-30 years old, 5 feet 8 or 5 feet 9 and weighing 175 pounds. He was wearing gym shoes, jeans, a blue hooded sweatshirt and a Halloweenmask with a long nose.

Anyone with information should call Amelia Police at 753-4747 or the county sheriff's department at 732-7545.
