CLEAR LAKE – Sherburne County authorities, Becker Police and the FBI are investigating a bank robbery in Clear lake this (Friday) morning.

Sherburne County Sheriff Joel Brott says they received a panic alarm from the Sherburne State Bank just after 11:30 a.m.  When police arrived, workers say a white man, approximately six-feet tall and with a husky build walked in wearing blue jeans, blue hoodie, black face mask and gloves.

Brott says that’s when the man showed a gun and demanded money…he handed the teller a bag, got an undisclosed amount of cash and left on foot.

Sheriff Brott says no one was hurt in the robbery and police are asking anyone with information on the crime to call them toll-free at 1-800-433-5245.
