PAULS VALLEY, Okla. -- The man who robbed a Pauls Valley bank on Tuesday remained at large one day later.

Police Chief Mitch McGill said the bandit who held up the IBC Bank displayed no weapon and was in the area for less than 10 minutes. Investigators believe he isn't from Pauls Valley, and his sole intention was to rob the bank.

"We're absolutely sure that he went north on the interstate, we have narrowed that down," McGill said. "We believe he came or went back north for some reason."

The FBI described the suspect as a white male, approximately 6 feet tall, and in his 50s. He was last seen wearing a green jacket, green mask, and a green toboggan.

The suspect left the bank on foot, but may have later gotten into a black or dark blue 1990s model Dodge Dakota pickup truck with paint missing from the hood.

The Oklahoma Bankers Association is offering a $2,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect.
