The bomb squad is on the scene at Bank of Missouri on Broadway following a morning robbery. Cape Police are looking for a tall black man who was wearing coveralls when he allegedly robbed the bank. Sergeant Jason Selzer tells KZIM/KSIM the man walked into the bank shortly before 10 o’clock and placed a device on the counter demanding money. The man then reportedly fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, leaving the device. The bank and buildings in the immediate vicinity have been evacuated as a precaution and police are also limiting foot and car trafficking for several blocks. Several Cape Public Schools were placed on lock down as a safety precaution. Bank officials say the branch will be closed for the rest of the day and encourage anyone needing to do business to visit another office. Cape Police are being assisted by the FBI.
