[ISP] State Police Investigate Bank Robbery in North Manchester
Start Date: 1/24/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 1/24/2014
Entry Description
North Manchester, IN-Detectives from the Indiana State Police in Peru are investigating a bank robbery that occurred earlier this evening at the First Financial Bank in North Manchester.

Preliminary investigation revealed that at approximately 6:00 p.m., a lone male allegedly armed with a handgun entered the bank which is located at 106 N. Market Street and demanded money.

Within moments, the suspect exited the bank, with an undisclosed amount of money, got on a bicycle and rode a short distance to a Ford Ranger pickup truck. A witness oberseved this and followed the truck while relaying the information to 911 dispatchers. Officers from the North Manchester Police Department caught up to them and as they attempted to initiate a traffic stop, the suspect attempted to evade them as he entered Kosciusko County on State Road 13.

According to First Sergeant Chad Hill with the Kosciusko County Sheriff Department, the suspect stopped his vehicle on State Road 13, just north of State Road 14. As he was being given numerous verbal commands by officers, he reportedly turned his firearm on himself inside of his truck. He was pronounced dead at the scene by the Kosciusko County Coroner Michael Wilson "from injuries that appeared to be consistent to self-inflicted gunshot wounds".

The Kosciusko County Sheriff Department is handling the investigation as to the incident in their jurisdiction and questions pertaining to that should be directed to them directly.
