OKLAHOMA CITY -- A lone robber hit the Coppermark Bank in southwest Oklahoma City Wednesday afternoon.

James E. Finch, special agent in charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Oklahoma said a black male entered the bank about 3:15 Thursday afternoon and demanded money.  The bank employees gave him money from multiple teller drawers and the robber left the bank carrying an undetermined amount of money in a small, black trash bag.

A weapon was not seen and no one was injured.

The robber fled the scene in a white, newer model Ford F-150 crew cab truck with tinted windows, large chrome rims.  The truck was possibly bearing a Texas license plate.
