PEMBINE, Wis. (WBAY) - The Marinette County Sheriff's Office is looking for a man who robbed a bank in Pembine Monday afternoon. The man is considered armed and dangerous.
The robbery happened at about quarter after 1 at the Stephenson National Bank branch, Sheriff Jerry Sauve tells us. It's along Highway 141.
The robber was a tall, white man, 6'2" to 6'5". He had a thin to medium build. He wore a light blue jeans with a dark colored jacket or sweatshirt, brown or tan shoes, dark gloves, and covered his head in a dark, full-faced mask.
He might be driving a dark colored, mid-size SUV with silver, 5-spoke wheel covers. It was a mid- to late-model GMC, possibly an Acadia.
The sheriff's office says it is reviewing video of a suspect and the vehicle. Sheriff Sauve said investigators hope to have more information to release Tuesday morning.
Facebook users noticed a similar vehicle was used in an attempted credit union robbery Friday in Escanaba, Michigan -- about an hour's drive from Pembine. Our sister station TV6 reports a tall, masked man in a dark coat, carrying a handgun, tried to enter the Northern United Federal Credit Union at 5:53 p.m. The lobby closes at 5 p.m., according to the credit union's website.
