Sure, genius. That piece of paper on wall of the barber shop means it's clean and bug-free. Nope. All it means is they paid their money to the man.

That says nothing about bartering between individuals. It only refers to businesses and to barter exchanges. Better slow your roll.

QPD is investigating a possible correlation between Quincy's incident and bank robberies occurring in Missouri, Iowa and Illinois

The Quincy Police Department is currently working with the Illinois Statewide Terrorism and Intelligence Center (STIC), FBI and police agencies in Missouri, Iowa and Illinois in reference to the First Mid-Illinois Bank & Trust bank robbery in Quincy. 

Based on information and video received from multiple agencies, QPD is investigating a possible correlation between our incident and bank robberies occurring in Missouri, Iowa and Illinois since late November. 

ORIGINAL STORY:

Investigators are searching for a man who robbed a bank near the Quincy Mall Wednesday afternoon.

The Quincy Police Department along with K9 search dogs searched the area around the First Mid-Illinois Bank & Trust at 3233 Broadway.

Officers searched the parking lots of various businesses around the mall and the residential area north of the mall.

Lt. Jason Simmons with QPD said police responded to the bank robbery at 4 p.m.

The suspect is wearing a blue stocking cap, red jacket or fleece, gloves, black rimmed glasses and grey sweat pants. He is a thin black male, 6 feet tall and is in his mid-to-late 20s.

The suspect did not display a weapon and ran west towards 30th St. and possibly entered a building following the robbery.

Police officers and K9 units searched the immediate area and haven't located anyone fitting the description in any of the nearby buildings.

Police said that they don't believe the suspect remained in the area.

Anyone with information about the incident should contact the Quincy Police Department at 228-4470.
