Lenexa Police and the FBI are investigating a bank robbery this afternoon.

The robbery was reported around 1 p.m. Thursday at the Bank of America, located at 7747 Quivira Road.

The suspect was wearing a nylon stocking over his head, long sleeve green shirt and khaki pants. He was carrying a black bag and possibly put on a black jacket after leaving the building. He was last seen running west from the building.

There were reports that a man matching the suspect's description was seen getting into a vehicle in a nearby parking lot. Witnesses described that vehicle as a mid 90's Lincoln Towncar, tan or gold in color, possibly with Missouri license plates.

The Kansas Highway Patrol brought in their helicopter to search from above, while officers and detectives from both Lenexa and Shawnee swarmed the area. Those officers set up a large perimeter and a Lenexa K-9 performed searched the area but did not locate the suspect.

Police checked on several vehicles in area apartment complexes which were close to the description provided by witnesses.

Lenexa Police say no injuries were reported and no arrests have been made.

Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to call Lenexa Police at 913-477-7301 or the KC Metro TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (8477).
