LISBON, Maine — Police are investigating an armed robbery that occurred at the Five County Credit Union in Lisbon on Thursday afternoon.

According to the Lisbon Police Department, a single person entered the credit union at about 4:20 p.m. and immediately displayed a handgun, demanding cash from the tellers and a customer.

The suspect was described as 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall and of medium build, police said, and the alleged robber was reported as wearing dark colored pants and a dark colored zip-up style hooded sweatshirt. Police added that the person’s face was covered with a type of mask.

The person fled the scene on foot with an undetermined amount of money through the side parking lot of the credit union, according to police.

Police said that no shots were fired, and no one was harmed during the robbery.

Lisbon police, along with the assistance of Sabattus Police and Cumberland County Sheriff’s deputies, conducted a search of the area but were unable to locate the alleged robber. A K-9 from the Auburn Police Department attempted a track but was unsuccessful in determining where the person had gone from where witnesses behind a neighboring business had last seen the alleged robber.

The credit union was immediately closed and locked down after the robbery.

Lisbon police have been in contact with agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigations.

Anyone with information should call Lisbon police Detective Bernard McAllister or Sgt. Scott Stewart at 353-2500.
