Cedarburg, Wisconsin - Cedarburg police Tuesday night released surveillance video from Monday's bank robbery of Commerce State Bank. A man wearing a disguise, including sunglasses and a fake beard, entered the bank and forced three employees and one bank customer into a back room before exiting with an unknown amount of money. An elderly woman refused to cooperate with the robber, walked out of the bank, and called the police.
The man used a fake bomb (the red item seen in the video on the floor) and a pistol to intimidate the bank employees. He escaped in an employee's car, abandoning it in the parking lot of a nearby apartment complex.
