WATERVILLE, Maine — No arrests have been made, but Waterville police say they have several leads as to the whereabouts of a man who robbed a bank in the city last week.

“We had about half a dozen leads come in, we worked through the weekend and now we’re back at it this morning,” Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey said on Monday.

Police have been searching for the man who robbed Key Bank on Kennedy Memorial Drive since the incident occurred on Thursday afternoon.

Surveillance images of the suspect, a white, middle-aged man with a heavy build, were released to the Bangor Daily News on Friday. Rumsey has said a dye bag placed in the man’s bag of money exploded as he left the bank, with pink dye ending up on him and the cash.

“We don’t know what his current location is,” Rumsey said. “We’re hoping that anyone who has seen a [person] matching our male subject’s description walking in the area the day of the robbery would call and ask to speak to somebody.”

Anyone with information on the robbery or the suspect’s whereabouts is encouraged to call Waterville police at 680-4700.
