A man wearing a hat with a maple leaf on it robbed United Business Bank, formerly Grand Mountain Bank, in Fraser on Wednesday.

Afterward, a number of police vehicles blocked off the bank’s parking lot while officers investigated the incident, in which the robber gave a bank cashier a note demanding all the money in the drawer.

The robber did not display a weapon during the robbery and he fled the bank northwest toward Railroad and Byers Avenue, according to police.



The robber is described as a white male in his 50s or 60s with a stocky build, medium length gray hair and a beard. He was captured in a hat with a maple leaf on it by bank security cameras.

Police are asking anyone who may see or recognize the man to call Grand County Dispatch at 970-887-3549.



Later Wednesday night, police also said they were looking for a pickup truck that was in the area of the bank immediately after the robbery and is believed to be associated with the suspect.

It is described as a newer model, dark gray Ford F-150 with no front plate.
