Search continues for Peru bank robber

Posted by wlpo on May 31, 2016

An armed bank robber remains on the loose after pulling off a heist in Peru.

Peru Police Chief Doug Bernabei says the FBI and the state police’s special crimes unit is helping follow leads after the Centrue Bank location on Shooting Park Road was robbed Tuesday morning just before 10:30. You can check out surveillance photos of the robber on the WLPO Facebook page.

The robber allegedly ran out the back door of the bank and could’ve sped away in a small hunter green, 4-door car. There were supposedly sightings of the car on Shooting Park Road prompting Peru elementary schools to go on lockdown Tuesday afternoon.

If you have any information, call the Peru Police Department.
