A reward of $5,000 has been announced for information leading to an arrest in the Nov. 26 robbery of the National Bank of Commerce in Poplar, southeast of Superior on U.S. Highway 2.

The reward is being offered by the Wisconsin Bankers Association and the National Bank of Commerce.

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office is investigating the armed robbery.

According to police, a man entered the bank shortly after 10 a.m. that Tuesday and showed a gun.

The suspect was described as white, in his mid- to late 20s, about 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-8 and weighing between 150 and 160 pounds. He was wearing a greenish-blue plaid jacket with a light-colored striping, gray sweatpants with a wide, dark-colored stripe running down each leg, dark-colored ski gloves with white lettering on the back of each hand, a black mask and gray hat with a greenish-colored stripe around it.

Douglas County Sheriff Tom Dalbec said the suspect took money and was last seen exiting the rear door of the bank and used a bank employee's dark blue Kia Sedona minivan, Wisconsin license plate 752-DBK, to drive away.

"I believe the suspect just demanded keys from one of the employees, and she had hers readily available and handed them over to avoid anybody getting hurt," Dalbec said.

No one was injured in the robbery and no shots were fired. An undisclosed amount of cash was taken.

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's office at (715) 395-1371 or 911, their local law enforcement agency if outside Douglas County or the FBI's 24-hour hot line at (414) 276-4684.
