COMMERCE TOWNSHIP (WWJ) – Was it a crime of opportunity? Police are searching for a thief who stole money from the counter of a bank inside a Commerce Township Kroger store.
In-house surveillance shows the suspect reaching over the counter at the Comerica Bank inside the store in the 47000 block of W. Pontiac Trail — a bank teller was preparing to open the branch and had placed a large amount of currency on the counter.
According to police the teller was distracted for a period of time when the suspect reached over and nabbed the money. He ran out of the store but it’s not know in what direction or whether it was to a waiting car.
He’s described as a white man, about 25-30 years old. He was carrying a white cane and wearing a dark blue shirt with a U of M decal and blue jean shorts.
