Rogue River, Ore.- A bank robber wearing a black cowboy hat strode into the Evergreen Bank in Rogue River Friday and handed the teller a note demanding all her $50 and $100 bills.

Rogue River police responded to the call for help within two minutes and officers, along with Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputies, started searching the area. The search forced the temporary lockdown of both the town’s elementary schools.

Police say they do not believe the robber was carrying a weapon and he didn’t threaten anyone with physical harm.
