Roseville police are searching for a robbery suspect at Bremer Bank who allegedly stole his getaway car from a Pizza Hut delivery person in Sioux Falls.
Police were called to the bank at 1715 West County Road B2 on Saturday at 9:40 a.m. after the suspect had entered the bank, handed a teller a handwritten robbery note demanding money and implied he had a gun. The teller gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of money, and he carried it into the parking lot and fled west on American Street in a 2000 silver Pontiac Grand AM.
Police found the car minutes later abandoned in Rosedale Commons, which had been stolen from a Pizza Hut delivery person in Sioux Falls at 10:50 p.m. the day before the robbery, police said.
