A robber is wanted and two workers at a neighboring store are charged after the 5th/3rd Bank inside the Ferguson Road Kroger was robbed.

On April 20, 2012, at 10:16 a.m., District Three police officers were dispatched to 2310 Ferguson Road for a report of a robbery at the Fifth Third Bank inside of Kroger.  A man entered the bank area and passed a note to the teller demanding cash.  Officers arrived within minutes of the alarm, but the suspect had already fled the bank through the front doors of Kroger and was last seen running behind the building. 

Police are still looking for the robber, yet have already made two arrests.  They say two people working at the Petsmart next door saw that the robber was spilling cash as he ran away, grabbed the money, and didn't tell police about it.   

19-year-old Nicolas Wuebbling of Delhi Township and 21-year-old Jeffrey Geiman of Green Township are charged with obstructing official business and receiving stolen property.  A police report says Wuebbling was caught on video picking up cash. 

The search continues for the bank robbery suspect.  The Criminal Investigation Section, Major Offenders Unit is looking for a white male suspect with brown hair, 35 years old, approximately 6'0, with a slim build.  He was wearing a light blue shirt with navy trim around the collar and Tommy Hilfiger written across the front, a light blue and white baseball hat, and dark colored shorts.
