Oxford Police say they are still investigating, but leads are not panning out after Thursday’s bank robbery.
Police Chief Kirk Ives says they have been checking on leads in the case over the weekend, but those leads have lead to dead ends so far.
The Emerald Bank, in the 300 block of east main in Oxford, was robbed Thursday morning. Police and the FBI are still trying to find the man who entered the bank with a hand gun and demanded money.
The man is described as a white male, 6' tall, 160-180lbs wearing a dark blue zip up hoodie with no markings, camouflage pants, and a black pullover ski mask. If anyone has any information, you are asked to call police.
