— The FBI and Bethany police are investigating a bank robbery that happened Tuesday at a Homeland grocery store.

FBI officials said a man walked up to the counter of the Bank of Oklahoma branch inside the store at 7101 NW 23 about 10:45 a.m. and demanded the teller give him money. Witnesses told police the man had a silver handgun.

The teller complied with the demand and the robber left with an undisclosed amount of money.

FBI officials said investigators think he is the man who robbed the same bank on Dec. 18.

The robber was described as a white male in his mid-30s, about 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighing 160 pounds. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and white tennis shoes, and had a red bandanna covering his face.

He was last seen on foot heading east from the store.

Police ask anyone with information about the crime to call the FBI at 290-7770. The Oklahoma Banker's Association offers a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of anyone robbing a member bank.
