Hellertown Police released this photo of the man who robbed the BB&T branch at 741 Main Street at around 5 p.m. now. The suspect is still at large as of 8 p.m. Monday.

Police did not disclose how much money the robber made off with, but said that after he fled the bank he changed clothes on Fehr Street in Hellertown.

Fehr Street is a small alley that runs from east to west between Oak and Harwi streets, south of W. Depot Street and north of Hampton Avenue.

Immediately following the robbery police were seen scouring that general area for the man, who police said was wearing black sneakers, dark-colored pants, a gray t-shirt, a dark-colored fanny pack, sunglasses and an olive-colored baseball cap with “Titleist” written in white on it, while in the bank.

After he changed clothes police said the man wore a white t-shirt, blue shorts and black sneakers, having removed his sunglasses.

It is not clear where the man headed after he was last seen on Fehr Alley.

Anyone who recognizes the man pictured in the surveillance photos or who has any information relating to the robbery is asked to contact Det. Dattilio at 610-759-2200.
