Police search for supermarket bank robbery suspect

Niagara Gazette —

NORTH TONAWANDA — Police are continuing a search for a robbery suspect who entered a bank Saturday inside Tops Friendly Market and gave a teller a note demanding money. 

Police Chief William Hall said officers arrived at Mid-City Plaza and were advised that the suspect had fled heading down Payne Avenue before he escaped.

"It was kind of a normal bank robbery if there is such a thing," Hall said. "Nobody got hurt and he left right away. But it's still traumatic for the people involved." 

Police are asking resident to call North Tonawanda detectives at 692-4312 with any information that may assist in identifying the suspect.

No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
