Urbana police investigating bank robbery
URBANA — Urbana police are investigating a robbery at a bank in southeast Urbana that occurred late Thursday morning.
Lt. Bob Fitzgerald said about 11:55 a.m., a man entered the Heartland Bank, 1812 S. Philo Road, and passed a note to a teller saying he wanted money.
Although he did not display a weapon, he implied he had a gun, Fitzgerald said.
The teller, who was one of three employees in the bank, handed over an undisclosed amount of cash and the robber left on a bicycle headed south. No one was harmed.

He was wearing a black ball cap with white letters on the front and a polo shirt with white, green, yellow and black colors.
