Mishawaka police are asking for your help identifying a robbery suspect.  Witnesses say a man entered the 1st Source Bank on McKinley Ave. shortly before 11:00am on Thursday and demanded money.

The robber reportedly threatened to shoot the teller if he was handed a dye pack bag.  The teller handed over money in a dye pack bag and the robber fled. 

The pack exploded just outside the bank, the robber dropped the bag, and drove away in an unidentified vehicle nearby.

The suspect is described as a white male, about 5'10" tall and 180lb.  He had a dark hat with a design on the front, a dark hoodie jacket, jean shorts, and dark shoes.

The suspect matches the description of the robber at the AA Credit Union from Monday, June 10.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Mishawaka PD Detective Bureau at 574-258-1684 or Crime Stoppers at 574-288-STOP (7867).
