ORISKANY FALLS, N.Y. – The Oneida County Sheriff's Office has released photos of a suspect involved in a bank robbery in Oriskany Falls.

The Berkshire Bank on Main Street was robbed at 11:15 Wednesday morning, and the armed suspect is now on the run, Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol says.

A white man in his 50s, wearing a cowboy hat reportedly entered the bank and displayed what appeared to be a handgun and demanded money.
