Police in Lawrence are searching for a man who robbed a bank Tuesday afternoon.

The suspect used a handgun to rob the Huntington Bank in the 11800 block of Pendleton Pike around 3:15 p.m. Tuesday. The man, described as a thin African-American man in his mid-20s to early 30s, displayed the gun and demanded cash.

Investigators believe a dye pack inserted with the stolen money may have exploded in the parking lot west of the bank. The suspect might have run to a dark-colored GM passenger car parked behind a strip mall near the bank before driving off.

There were no customers inside the bank at the time of the robbery and there were no injuries reported.

The man was wearing a white head and face covering with sunglasses, gloves and a dark t-shirt with dark pants.

Anyone with additional information may contact Lawrence Police at 317-545-7575, or Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana, at 317-262-TIPS.@
