Oshtemo 5th/3rd Bank Robbed

On April 22, 2015, at 10:06 a.m., a lone male subject robbed the Fifth Third Bank located at 6040 Stadium Drive in Oshtemo Township.  The subject passed a note demanding money and indicating that he had a bomb.  He told tellers to refer to him as “Mr. Anderson” and stated “I’m moving to Florida.”  The subject fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.

A Kalamazoo Dept. of Public Safety K-9 tracked the subject west along Stadium Drive to Meridian & Sunset, where the scent was lost.  The subject is described as being 6’ to 6’2” tall, wearing a ball cap with the name “Golf Florida,” a gray scraggly long-haired wig, dark-colored jacket, white mask, black winter gloves, dark pants bloused at boot top, black boots, and carrying a black satchel bag.  The subject was also carrying a second type of bag, possibly for an oxygen bottle – seen in the photos was a clear tube coming from bag to mouth area.  Subject did indicate that he was sick.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detectives at the Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Office, 269-383-8723, the FBI at 269-349-9607, or Silent Observer at343-2100.  Tips can also be submitted online through this page by clicking on the "Give a tip" button at the left side of this page.





Silent Observer encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and lack of interest.

Silent Observer provides a telephone number and web tip page  to encourage citizens in the community to volunteer vital information helpful to law enforcement agencies in their crime-fighting efforts.   In addition, Silent Observer can receive  text messages which enables Silent Observer and the tipster to communicate back and forth anonymously.

Callers can remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward if the information given leads to an arrest and conviction, or grand jury indictment, of a felony offender.

Silent Observer relies on volunteer Directors and tax deductible contributions from the public in order to operate the administration of the program.
