About 4:55 p.m. Tuesday, someone robbed the Bank of the West, 5757 Northwest Expressway near Oklahoma City. The robber is described as being a black man or possibly black woman with light complexion and long dreadlocks, in his or her mid-30s, of heavy build and about 5 feet 6 inches tall, the FBI reported.

Customers who don’t pay their sewer bills are costing their neighbors money in Warr Acres.
Warr Acres residents get their water from Oklahoma City, but Warr Acres provides sewer service.
As long as residents are current on their water bills, Oklahoma City cannot threaten to shut off service.
And the state Department of Environmental Quality has told Warr Acres it cannot shut off sewer service.
So Warr Acres lacks the means to force customers to pay their bills, said the city attorney, Matt Love.
The city turned 1,526 accounts — $408,803.24 past due — over to a collection agency and has managed to recover only $47,349.09, Love said.
Accounts sent for collection are reset to zero, he said.
