The Meigs County Sheriff's Office is investigating a report of an armed robbery that took place Thursday in Tuppers Plains.
The Athens Messenger reports that Farmer's Bank on State Route 7 reported at 3:51 p.m. that it had been robbed of an undisclosed amount of money by an unknown person. The suspect, according to investigators, is said to be a male in his early to mid-20s and was wearing a red T-shirt with a Nike swoosh emblem on the front. He has brown hair and facial hair in the form of a small goatee.
After the robbery, the suspect fled in what may be an older model red or marron four-door car.
According to the sheriff's office, the suspect was seen in the area prior to the robbery and made several statements that he was not from the area.
