The 5-foot-7-inch robber was wearing a black and gray North Face jacket, a black wool beanie, blue pants and red sneakers when he walked into the Valley National branch on Sheridan Avenue off Franklin Turnpike around 2 p.m., Police Chief Christopher Minchin said.
He passed a note and didn’t show a gun before apparently ducking out the back door with the cash, Minchin said.
The robber also took the note with him, the chief said.
The Bergen County sheriff sent a K-9 unit and his Bureau of Criminal Identification to collect evidence. The FBI also responded. The county prosecutor and area police departments were notified.
Anyone who witnessed any part of the holdup or has information that could help identify the robber is asked to contact Ho-Ho-Kus police at (201) 652-1700 ext. 103 (Detective Sgt. Greg McBain) or the FBI at (973) 792-3000.
Or dial 911.
