A bank was robbed Tuesday afternoon.

Richland County Sheriff's Detectives are searching for the suspect.
  
A white male entered Key Bank at 1001 Ashland Road in Madison Township at 1:45 pm and handed the teller a note demanding money.

Tellers reported the robber became angry because they were taking too long to give him cash, and held his hand in his coat pocket as if he had a gun.  No weapon was displayed.

He also carried a red, five-gallon gas can into the bank, left at the front door during the hold-up, then carried it away as he fled on foot.  

It is not known if the robber fled in a car.

No employees were hurt.

The man was wearing a green waist-length Carhart type coat, a hooded sweatshirt with an Ohio State University logo, sun glasses, and a surgical mask.

Anyone with information is asked to call Sheriff's Detective Duane Kilgore at 419-774-5610.

The F-B-I may also be called in to investigate.
