GREENVILLE — Video was rolling during an armed robbery of the Huntington Bank in downtown Greenville.

However, surveillance footage has yielded no clues as to the identity of the suspect who allegedly used a gun to rob the bank the morning of Nov. 9.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is leading the investigation, but has no suspects more than three weeks later.

“There was video, but unfortunately the video wasn’t anything beneficial for us,” said FBI Supervisory Senior Resident Agent John King from his Grand Rapids office. “It was pretty poor quality.”

Greenville Department of Public Safety (GDPS) Director Mike Stuck said a man walked into Huntington Bank just after 10:30 a.m. and showed a gun to tellers before making off with an undisclosed amount of money.
The man left the scene on foot, cutting through an alley and running into the residential neighborhood east of the downtown area before police lost sight of him.

Police describe the suspect as a white male about 6 feet tall and 180 pounds. He was wearing light jeans, a black and white plaid jacket, a blue glove and a gray glove and a blue ski mask with a winter hat that covered his ears.

“We continue to track some leads, but other than that I don’t have anything to report,” King said. “We encourage your readers to call in Silent Observer tips with any information that they have.”

People can call the GDPS at (616) 754-9161, Silent Observer at 1-866-774-2345 or the FBI office in Grand Rapids at (616) 456-5489.
