A man robbed a TCF Bank inside a Maplewood Cub Foods store earlier this month, and Maplewood police have been unable to find him. They are hoping the public can help.
The robber was wearing a bright yellow neon traffic vest when he handed a teller a note demanding money at 2:30 p.m. on Aug. 15 at the TCF branch located inside the store at 2390 White Bear Av., police said.
He fled with an unspecified amount of money and was believed to have driven off in a 2000s model tan or gold Chrysler minivan with an unknown license plate, said Maplewood Police Chief Paul Schnell.
At some point during the getaway, he ditched the vest, which police have recovered. But they have yet to find the man.
Witnesses described the robber as a 30- to 40-year-old black male between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet and 160 to 180 pounds. He was wearing the traffic vest, a black sweatshirt, bluejeans and a black baseball cap, according to surveillance photos released Thursday.
Anybody with information is asked to call Maplewood police at 651-249-2600.
