WELLINGTON, Ohio — Police are trying to find the suspect in a Wellington bank robbery.

According to the Cleveland Division of the FBI, a white male entered Sun Center Federal Credit Union, 805 Patriot Drive, at just after 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Police say the man showed a gun and ordered a teller to place money from her drawer into a white garbage bag. The teller complied, and the suspect asked a second teller to do the same. He then ordered both tellers to a back room in the building. The door was closed, and he fled.

No one was injured.

Police believe the man left the credit union on foot, went through a wooded area and got into a getaway vehicle.

The suspect is described as about 5 feet, 6 inches tall and was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, faded blue jeans, black gloves, black shoes and a scarf around his face. A bluish/green/gray tattoo was seen on his forearm by a witness who was leaving the credit union prior to the robbery.

The man’s image was caught on surveillance video.

A reward is being offered for information leading to the man’s arrest. Anyone with information should call 216-522-1400.
