The Burnett County Sheriff's Office has released surveillance photos from Wednesday's robbery of a bank in Danbury, Wis.

The Bremer Bank branch was robbed at about 2:20 p.m.  Bank employees say a lone male suspect with a handgun demanded money, and he fled on foot with cash, running into a wooded area southeast of the bank.  No one was injured.

A search was conducted using police K9 units and a Wisconsin DNR aircraft, but the suspect was not located.

The robber was wearing a white hooded sweatshirt, a tight-fitting white covering over his face, dark glasses, dark pants possibly with a logo or design on the right rear pocket, light colored gloves, and white athletic shoes.

The Burnett County Sheriff's Office asked anyone with information to call them at 715-349-2121.  The Federal Bureau of Investigation is also working on the case.

Danbury is about 60 miles south of Duluth and 30 miles east of Hinckley, Minn.
