FBI, Maple Heights police searching for man who robbed bank

MAPLE HEIGHTS, Ohio -- The Cleveland Division of the FBI and Maple Heights police are searching for a man who robbed a Citizens Bank Friday afternoon.

The robbery happened about 3:15 p.m. at the branch on Broadway Avenue near Libby Road, FBI spokeswoman Vicki Anderson said.

The man walked into the bank, approached a teller and demanded money, Anderson said.

The teller complied and gave the man cash, including a dye pack, authorities said.

The dye pack exploded outside near the bank. The man ran from the bank. He may have red dye on his hands or clothing and may use the money with red dye, Anderson said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Cleveland FBI at 216-522-1400 or Maple Heights police at 216-662-1234.

Tips can remain anonymous and reward money is available for tips leading to the identity of the man.
