MADRAS, OR -- Wednesday, Aug. 23, 2017

 

Madras Police say they’ve identified the man who robbed the U.S. Bank in downtown Madras, amid Monday afternoon’s eclipse crowds. Working with the FBI, investigators believe 28-year-old Tyler Wayne Fuller walked into the bank just before 2 p.m. and demanded cash from the teller.

 

Fuller grew up in Madras and attended Madras High. He's described as 5'-9", 160 pounds, with blonde hair and blue eyes. 
 
Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call police. Madras Police can be reached at 541-475-2424. They say if you see Fuller, do not confront  him; instead call 911. 
 
THURSDAY P.M. UPDATE: Tyler Fuller, wanted in connection with the Monday robbery of a Madras bank, was arrested Thursday afternoon.
