Authorities in Cooper County and the Missouri State Highway Patrol are investigating an alleged robbery at a bank in Blackwater.  Officials said a man walked into the Alliant Bank on Main Street shortly before 4:00 p.m. Wednesday and demanded an undisclosed amount of money.  He reportedly displayed a gun to a teller and fled the scene on foot.

The suspect is described as a white male between 5’10” and 6′ feet tall.  He was wearing a purple button-down shirt, khaki pants, sunglasses, and a black baseball cap.  Authorities believe he may have gotten into a nearby green car with Flordia license plates.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact their local law enforcement agency.
