Ashley bank held up again

Investigators have released these images of the second robbery in three months at the Firstbank branch in Ashley. According to Michigan State Police Lt. Doug Wright, the suspect entered the bank wearing a dark-colored ski mask and told the tellers something like "get down on the floor and no one will be hurt."

The man then jumped the counter and removed an undisclosed amount of cash from the tellers' drawers.

There was no weapon seen by the three bank employees on duty, and the man did not imply he had one, Wright said. The suspect is described as a white male about 5 feet, 10 inches tall with a thin build. He was wearing blue jeans with multiple holes in the left pant leg; red and black checkered long sleeve flannel shirt; gray tennis-style shoes with white and yellow stripes, and red winter gloves with a black stripe.

“The track led to the edge of the road where the suspect possibly had a vehicle waiting,” Wright said. However, no vehicle was seen and the direction of travel is unknown. The method used and the culprit’s physical description are almost identical to that of the first robbery that took place on Tuesday, Nov. 24.
