BLANCHESTER — The Blanchester Police Department is offering a $1,000 cash reward to the person who provides information leading to the arrest and conviction of the men who robbed the Peoples Bank on Friday morning, according to Police Chief Scot Reinbolt.

Information should be provided to the police department either in person or by calling 937-783-4702.

The reward will be paid from the trust fund established earlier this year through an anonymous donation to the police department. The trust is managed by the Clinton County Foundation and is known as the Citizens for Adequate Policing Trust.

Also, police are interested in speaking with anyone who might have information on a truck seen in the area of Peoples Bank at the time of the robbery which occurred around 11:20 a.m. Friday. The vehicle is a red Ford 4-door pick-up.

“If the person driving the truck at the time is an innocent bystander, we would also like to hear from them so that we can move on to other leads,” said BPD Sgt. Gary Mowen.

Anyone who recognizes the truck or has information on the case is asked to contact the Blanchester Police Department at 937-783-4702.
