OSHTEMO TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Investigators are looking for the man who they say robbed the Fifth Third Bank, 6040 Stadium Dr.

According to the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Department, the robbery occurred at about 10 a.m. Wednesday when the suspect entered the bank, passed the teller a note and said he had a weapon.

The heavily disguised suspect told tellers to refer to him as “Mr. Anderson,” and told them he was moving to Florida, according to a release.  He took an undisclosed amount of cash and fled on foot.

Officials say they tracked him with a police dog along Stadium Drive and believe he later fled in a vehicle.

The suspect is described by deputies as being between 6 feet and 6 feet 2 inches tall, wearing  a ball cap that says “Golf Florida,” a grey long-haired wig, a dark-colored jacket, a white mask, black winter cloves, dark pants and black boots.

According to a release, the man was carrying a black satchel bag and a second bag that they believe may have been for oxygen.   He indicated to bank employees he was sick, officials said.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Department at 269-383-8723, the FBI at 269-349-9607 or Silent Observer at 269-343-2100.
