Pittsfield Township police are hoping a public tip can lead to the identification of a man who held up an area Best Bank outlet Friday morning. The suspect made off with an amount of cash, only to have a dye pack the teller included blow up on him.

The criminal episode occurred at about 10:30 a.m. Friday at a Best Bank located in a Kroger store in the 3200 block of Carpenter Road.

The suspect handed a teller a note demanding cash. The teller turned over an undisclosed sum of money, slipping in the red dye pack.

The suspect fled, getting into an older white car. Then the dye pack exploded, covering the bills, the car’s interior, and the suspect. Police think the suspect’s hands may have been burned. Even so, responding officers could not find the robber.

Police did release a rough description of the suspect. He is black, has a slender build, and is between 5‘4“ and 5‘8“ tall. He was wearing a fake beard as a disguise.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Pittsfield Township Police at (734) 822-4911, or their tip line, (734) 822-4558.
