Police have confirmed an attempted robbery of a bank in Downtown Casper.

Police spokesperson Sgt. Rich Brown says the robbery happened at about 4 p.m. Wednesday, March 26, at the Wells Fargo Bank branch, located on the corner of First and Durbin Streets.

The suspect is described as a white male in his 50s or 60s, 5’6″ to 5’8″, with brown hair, and either red cheeks or a scar on his face.

He was last seen wearing a black leather jacket, gray shirt, and a blue Denver Nuggets cap.

“A lone male entered the bank. The bank tellers tell us he lingered around for about five minutes” says Sgt. Brown. “He approached the teller. Basically said that it was a robbery, and to put the money in a bag. [The teller] stated that she did not have a bag, and she went into the back and got in touch with [police.]”

The suspect did not succeed in taking any money from the bank before fleeing the building.

The suspect is currently at large and, while he did not display a weapon during the robbery, should be considered armed and should not be approached.

Sgt. Brown also confirms that there is no connection between the attempted bank robbery and the lockdown of two Natrona County schools earlier Wednesday afternoon.

Anyone with information as to the suspect’s whereabouts is asked to call the Casper Police department.

Kevin Koile and Trevor T. Trujillo contributed to the story.
