PORTLAND, Ore. -- A bandit left the goods -- or the evidence, depending on which way you see it -- in someone's yard after robbing a Northeast Portland bank.
Police said they received a report of a robbery Wednesday afternoon at the Columbia Bank branch at 10735 N.E. Halsey St. The robber entered the bank, displayed a handgun and demanded money, according to the Portland Police Bureau.
The robber then took off through a nearby neighborhood, where he left some of the money behind.
Jeffrey Brock, who lives in the 10100 block of Northeast Weidler Street, was doing yard work when he saw someone running through his neighbor's yard. Brock alerted his neighbor and also called 911.
Then, officers responded, but the robber had already gotten away, Brock said.
When he returned to his house he spotted a bunch of $5 bills in his yard, probably totaling $100 or $200.
A forensic team collected the money and the suspect's glasses as well as a BB gun, which the bandit also had left behind.
The robber is described as white, in his 50s, 5 feet 9 inches, 200 pounds, with dark hair and wearing a dark baseball cap, black T-shirt and tan shorts. Anyone with information, should call Detective Darren Posey at 503-823-0403.
