Duncan Police search for possible bank robber

IBC Bank on Main Street targeted

DUNCAN — Duncan and state police authorities are looking for a man who allegedly robbed IBC Bank on Main Street in Duncan today at about 4 p.m.

Detective Donny Foraker said a man walked into the bank and presented a teller with a note requesting money in 10s, 20s and $100 bills.

Immediately Duncan police responded to Main Street, with information that first directed them to First Bank & Trust, which sits on the opposite corner of 10th and Main Street. They had their weapons drawn, but the bank was closed. They were able to talk to an employee who said it was not that bank. After more information was provided through City dispatch services, they went to IBC and then began searching all areas west and east of IBC Bank.

Around 5:30 p.m. there was a report that the individual may have left Duncan. Officers are still investigating and Oklahoma Highway Patrol may be involved in the search. It is not known if weapons were involved or how much money the individual got away with.
