Crime Stoppers: Suspect sought in bank robbery near 76th and Morgan
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- During the pandemic, Milwaukee police have seen record amounts of crime, including bank robberies due to the fact that wearing a mask is pretty normal.
In this incident, the suspect just walked in and walked right out.
"He was so quick about it and was so quiet that he didn't draw any attention," said MPD Detective Jacob Ivy.
Milwaukee police say a suspect wearing a mask robbed this Chase bank on 76th and Morgan on March 2.
Around 3:50 in the afternoon, witnesses say he walked in, grabbed a withdrawal slip and wrote a note on it saying he had a gun.
He handed the teller a note, got $2,000 in cash, then casually walked out and walked down the street, away from the bank.
"Normally, the suspect will leave the note. In this case, he took it back, so we don't have the note to test for prints or writing. Also, there's usually a getaway vehicle and we were not able to observe any vehicle in any of the surveillance," said Detective Ivy. "He walked away very slowly and casually, he didn't run, he didn't hop into a car at a high rate of speed. He just walked out of the bank like nothing happened. Multiple tellers, customers and managers in the branch -- no one was hurt physically, but an incident like this does leave a traumatizing effect."
