BETHANY, Oklahoma -

A robbery occurred Tuesday morning at the Bank of Oklahoma in Bethany, Okla. inside Homeland Grocery at NW 23rd St.

Around 10:45 a.m., an unknown white male entered the Homeland Grocery, approached the teller counter with what one bank employee identified as a silver handgun.

The subject stated, "This is a robbery. Give me all your money." The teller provided an undisclosed amount of money, and the subject took the money and was last seen on foot traveling eastbound from the Homeland Grocery.

The subject is described as a white male, mid 30s, 5 feet 7 inches to 5 feet 8 inches, 160 pounds, medium build, brown hair, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, white tennis shoes and a red bandana over his face.

This same Bank of Oklahoma was robbed last December, and investigators believe it may be the same individual.

Anyone with information is requested to call the FBI at 405-290-7770. This number is available 24 hours a day, and callers may remain anonymous. 

The Oklahoma Banker's Association is offering up to $2,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of anyone robbing a member bank.
