OSAGE CITY, Kan. (WIBW) -- The man who robbed an Osage City bank Wednesday morning is still on the run.

The Kansas Bureau of Information has released more details about the incident, which happened shortly after 9:00 a.m. at the Landmark National Bank.

No one was hurt in the robbery. The suspect reportedly made off with around $5,200, Osage Co. Police Chief Fred Nesh said.

Surveillance images show the suspect is a white man, in his 30's, with medium-length brown hair and a beard. He was wearing a black button-up coat with a brown hood, jeans, and unlaced tan shoes, the KBI said.

The agency also released a better description of the pickup truck used in the robbery. They now say the suspect took off in a 2002-03 Ford F-150 Supercrew Lariat FX4 4x4. It's white with grey, beige, or chrome rocker panels. The truck has an aftermarket, heavy front bumper with an attached grill and brush guard. The front bumper has a winch opening. The pickup appears to be missing paint on the roof and on the driver's side near the sunroof.

The search for the suspect has prompted USD 251, in North Lyon County, to put it schools on Lockout until further notice. In a Facebook post, the district noted that there is no immediate threat to the school or the students and staff.

In a Lockout, all of the students are brought inside, the perimeter is secured, and all outside doors are locked. The district said anyone with questions can contact the school office or district office at 620-443-5116.

The FBI has taken the lead in the investigation, a KBI spokesperson said.
