Police Searching For Suspect In US Bank Robbery in Lee's Summit

Police Searching For Suspect In US Bank Robbery in Lee's Summit

June 20, 2014

At approximately 6:12 p.m., Wednesday June 18, 2014 a robbery occurred at the US Bank, located inside of the Price Chopper Grocery store located at 300 SW Blue Parkway, Lee’s Summit, Mo.

According to police reports, a lone male handed a bank teller a demand note before fleeing the scene on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.

“The suspect was not armed or at least did not brandish a weapon,” FBI Public Affairs Officer Bridget Patton said. “He fled on foot and has not yet been captured.”

The suspect has been described as a Caucasian male with a dark complexion, approximately 5’10” with a slim build. He was wearing a dark winter cap, dark clothing and sunglasses.

This sudden act of crime raises the question of whether there is a continuing increase in criminal activity in our area.

“Across the board for Kansas and Western, MO, we are on par with the same amount of bank robberies as we had last year and the previous year,” Patton said. “This is the first bank robbery in Lee’s Summit in 2014. Last year, there was one bank robbery as well. So we are not seeing any dramatic increase from 2013.”

As for the store itself, the manager confirmed that no one was hurt. Since the man was not armed and did not cause a scene, most of the customers inside were not even aware the robbery was happening. The clerks followed protocol and everything was taken care of quickly and smoothly.

“It was the best, worst scenario,” the store manager said.

The FBI is asking for the public’s assistance to identify and help locate the suspect responsible for the robbery of the US Bank. Anyone with information should contact the FBI at (816) 512-8200 or their local law enforcement department.

    We didn't use to have hardly any crime or traffic jams and hardly any stores in Lees Summit years ago. Now that it has grown by leaps and bound, it was just a matter of time.
