CEDAR CITY — Police are searching for a man they say robbed a bank Tuesday afternoon, triggering a lockdown for a nearby school.
Police say an older white man entered Mountain America Credit Union, 1701 W. Royal Hunte Drive, about 1:30 p.m. and handed a teller a note demanding money. Police do not believe the man was armed.
The man left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money, and Cedar Middle School, which is less than a half-mile away from the bank, was put on a precautionary lockdown. The lockdown was lifted about 4 p.m.
The man is described as being in his 50s with gray hair. He was wearing faded blue jeans, a green shirt, a light green baseball cap and a green coat with a tan collar.
Anyone with information about the man is asked to contact Cedar City Police at 435-586-2956.
