WYOMING, Mich. – Police say they have recovered a bicycle that a suspected bank robber used in a robbery Wednesday afternoon.

Wyoming Police are looking for anyone with information as to who may own the bicycle.  Anyone with information should call 616-530-7300 or Silent Observer at 616-774-2345.

Police tracked the suspect to a nearby trail and resulted in a heavy police presence, including a Michigan State Police helicopter, along Division Avenue to 68th Street and Cutlerville.

The suspect is described as a white man with short reddish-blonde hair.  He stands about 5’8″ to 5’11” tall and was wearing gloves, a camouflage jacket and an orange ski mask.  He also may be wearing a black t-shirt and brown/yellow/white plaid shorts.
