BANGOR, Maine — Several people have called Bangor Police Department with information about the identity of the man who robbed the Bangor Savings Bank branch on Broadway Saturday afternoon, Sgt. Paul Edwards said Monday.

“We’re following up on some of those leads this morning,” he said. “We’re working on those.”

The bank robbery was reported at 2:18 p.m. Saturday at 652 Broadway. Police released four bank surveillance images of the bank robber and the red Jeep Liberty he used as a getaway car shortly after he walked out with an undisclosed amount of cash.

They are asking the public for help in identifying him.

The robber is described as a white man between 25 and 35 years of age who was wearing a two-tone gray and black spring jacket and black baseball cap. Police say he robbed the bank using a note demanding money. Information on whether he had a weapon or threatened to use one was not immediately available.

Surveillance images show the robber at the counter and leaving the bank, as well as the Jeep he apparently arrived and left in. Police believe the red Jeep Liberty was possibly a 2002 through 2004 model.

Those who recognize the man or the Jeep or who have other information are asked call the Bangor Police Department at 947-7384. The department’s anonymous tip line can be reached by selecting Ext. 6.
