Hawaiʻi Island police are searching for a 30-year-old man wanted in connection with a bank robbery in West Hawaiʻi on Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2017.

At 3:05 p.m. Tuesday, police received a report of a robbery at a bank on the 81-6600 block of Highway 11 in Kealakekua.

Bank employees reported that a man had entered the bank and passed a note to a teller demanding cash.

He then fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of money and walked north along Highway 11.

He was wearing a blue T-shirt, blue-and-white surf shorts, slippers and glasses.

Police investigation, including a tip from the public, led the identity of the suspect as Russell Monlux, who has no permanent address but frequents both East Hawaiʻi and West Hawaiʻi.
