A masked man robbed the Boundary Waters Bank Thursday morning in Woodbury.

Federal investigators are searching for a man who robbed the Boundary Waters Bank in Woodbury Thursday morning.

The robbery was reported at the bank on the 2200 block of Eagle Creek Lane shortly after 9 a.m., Woodbury police officials said.

Investigators said the suspect walked into the bank and told a teller to give cash.

The man, who was dressed in all black save for a white mask and white sunglasses, told bank employees he had a gun, but did not display a weapon, the police report stated. A teller gave him an undisclosed amount of cash, which the robber put into a paper bag. He then left the scene on foot. He then ran away from the bank in the direction of the Eagle Valley Golf Course, just south of the bank, reports state.

The robber is described by authorities as a white male between 5 feet, 10 inches and 6 feet tall. He is between 30 to 40 years old with a medium to large build.

The Federal Bureau of Investigations has taken the case, Woodbury police officials said.

The FBI is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect.

The Boundary Waters Bank was also robbed in August 2005.

The last bank robbery in Woodbury occurred in December 2008 at the North American Banking Company, at 9260 Hudson Road.
