Police are continuing to sort through leads while investigating a bank robbery in Auburn.

Auburn Police Department Capt. James Moore said Friday that the APD has received a lot of leads from the public since the robbery at Generations Bank on North Seward Avenue Wednesday.

He said that while "a lot of leads don't turn out to be much," others have developed into useful information. Moore said he and all four of the department's detectives are working on the case. He said the state police and the Cayuga County Sheriff's Office — who both had members at the scene Wednesday — have offered their assistance as well as the FBI office in Syracuse.

"We're two days in and we've made progress up to this point," he said.

Moore asked that anyone who believes they saw a person on a blue and white motorcycle in the area of the robbery between 4 and 5 p.m. or may have footage of the motorcyclist captured from home security systems to contact the APD.

The APD had previously said the motorcyclist is believed to have information that will aid the investigation.

A man armed with a pistol walked into the bank at around 4:18 p.m. Wednesday demanding cash. Officers searched the surrounding area but did not locate a suspect. 

Police later released video surveillance images of the robber and a motorcycle seen in the area at the time. The suspect is a white male of average height and weight who was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt (turned inside out), blue jeans, a hat with a green brim and dark colored shoes. Police said the suspect's face was partially concealed by a green and black bandana.

Anyone with information concerning the case is asked to contact detective Meagan Kalet at (315) 255-4702 or (315) 253-3231. Callers may remain anonymous.
