Indiana State Police have asked for the public’s help and a $5,000 reward has been offered as authorities work to solve a July 2018 robbery of a Wolcottville bank.

It was just before 3 p.m. July 26 when a shirtless white male with a moustache and beard, who was wearing a dark-colored ball cap and carrying a dark-colored backpack, walked into the Farmer’s State Bank in the 100 block of North Main Street in Wolcottville. The man showed what appeared to be a black-colored handgun and demanded money, police said.

He made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and fled on foot northbound before running west down a nearby alley. State police said he was last seen driving from the area in what appeared to be a silver or light blue colored Ford Crown Victoria or Mercury Marquis.

Anyone with any information on the incident is asked to contact either the Indiana State Police Post in Fort Wayne at (260) 432-8661 or Crime Stoppers (260) 436-STOP (7867). Anonymous calls will be accepted. Tips can also be emailed to Crime Stoppers HERE.

A $5,000 cash reward is also being offered by an entity who wishes to remain anonymous for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person involved in this robbery.
