Surveillance tape has been circulated as police continue to search for the man who attempted to rob Municipal Bank in Momence late Friday morning.

No one was injured and no money was stolen during the 11:30 am incident, according to Momence Police Chief Tim Swanson.

At the time of the attempted robbery, he was wearing sunglasses, a lime green shirt with blue jeans and a safari-type hat. He had scotch tape on his fingers and slight facial hair.
