WHITESBORO, N.Y. (WKTV) - Tuesday night Police continued to search for the man who robbed the Adirondack Bank on Oriskany Boulevard in Whitesboro. Whitesboro Village Police say just before 4:30 pm. a white male of medium build wearing a black sweatshirt and jeans allegedly demanded money from the teller.

Whitesboro Village Police Chief Dominick Hiffa says while the suspect threatened that he had a weapon, no weapon was displayed.

The chief says the suspect was not wearing a mask when he demanded the teller for money, but did conceal his face with his sweatshirt pulled up covering half his face, his right hand partially covering the rest.

Chief Hiffa says the Whitesboro Village Police are now working with the State Police on the investigation and are following all leads as they come in.

"We're processing the scene with the help of the state police, the state police is processing the scene with their team, and we're going to make sure every I is dotted and every T crossed and hopefully we'll have a good result," said Chief Hiffa.

Earlier in the day police had responded to the Schoolhouse Apartments on Main Street in Whitesboro with rumors that the suspect was there, however Chief Hiffa says that turned out to have no connection at this time as well as leads about the suspect taking off in a white Escalade or blue Contour.

Anyone with information on the robbery, is asked to call Whitesboro Village Police.
