UPDATE: Police are still searching for a man who robbed Chemical Bank in Middleville Thursday at 3:39 p.m., Barry County Sheriff Dar Leaf said.
The man, who fled on foot in the direction of Sherman and Lem Paul streets in the village, was last seen wearing a camo jacket/zipped up tight, bright orange/black hat, blue jeans and grey colored shoes. Leaf said the man implied he had a gun, but it isn’t clear if he had a weapon or not. He couldn’t say how much money the man stole.
Following protocol, Thornapple Kellogg Schools were put in lockdown after the incident and gradually released when it was determined to be safe, he said. Deputies were present at all schools that held after school activities.
