Search on after bank robbery — A manhunt is on for a lone man who robbed a Pauls Valley bank early Monday afternoon.

Few details have been made available about the robbery at the First United Bank branch office located in the 2000 block of West Grant near the Indian Meridian intersection on the west side of Pauls Valley.

The robbery came just after 1 p.m. Monday as Pauls Valley police quickly mobilized and started a search for the subject.

The search of the surrounding area included officers looking through a corn field located right next door to the shopping area that includes the bank.

Officers are now on the lookout for a white male estimated to be in his 40s or early 50s with a slender build and “salt and pepper” hair, referring to a mix of gray in his hair color.

The man, described as standing 6 feet to 6 feet, 4 inches tall, was wearing light blue jeans and a brown shirt.

Officials also said the man wore a lime green bandana over his face.

The individual put the money in a white plastic garbage sack and departed the bank.

The subject is believed to have parked at Murphy’s gas station in front of the local Walmart store.

From there he got into a small, four-door maroon car and fled the area going westbound on state Highway 19 in front of the bank’s location.

The man’s description came from witnesses and surveillance cameras in and around the area around the bank building.

The Oklahoma Bankers Association is now offering a reward up to $2,000 for information on the suspect robbing the Pauls Valley bank.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Pauls Valley Police Department at 405-238-5531 or the FBI at 405-307-7712.
