STONE LAKE, Wis. – A man who went to a northwoods bank's drive-up window demanding money fled on his camouflage-colored all-terrain vehicle after the teller held up candy suckers and said that's all she had, authorities said.
Chief Deputy Tim Zeigle of the Sawyer County Sheriff's Department said the attempted robbery of the Stone Lake Bank was reported at 4:16 p.m. Monday.
Zeigle said the suspect, who wore camouflage clothing and a black helmet and face mask, told the teller he wanted all the money, while showing her a bag that he said contained a bomb.
But the teller informed him the money had already been removed from the till and all she had was the candy.
That's when he fled in frustration.
Sawyer and Washburn county deputies searched the area without locating the suspect.
He remained at large Monday night, according to a Sawyer County dispatcher who declined to give his name.
Zeigle's news release did not name the teller.
